This round-table is part of a series of events aimed at launching a network of scholars and activists engaged with the question of international solidarity. We are particularly interested in the forgotten and ephemeral connections, sites, and documents of radical left solidarities; movements centered on decolonization, political and social equality, and redistributive justice; south-south as well as north-south solidarities; the techniques and functions of cultural solidarity activism; and our responsibilities as critics and scholars in relation to international solidarity movements. Our goal is to both work towards new understandings of international solidarity and to provide a means to mobilize knowledge between scholars and activists in the field.
