Postponed due to coronavirus precautions
In response to public health concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Brandeis University is implementing a policy requiring the cancellation or postponement of large gatherings. Thus, with deep regret, we announce that we will not be able to present the In Motion: Palestinian Arts and Culture conference. We sincerely hope to be able to reschedule during the 2020-21 academic year. Thank you for understanding.
