Sanctuary: Social, Legal, and Historical Perspectives on an Activist Category
December 8, 2016
Barnard College, Julius S. Held Lecture Hall

An idea with antecedents in medieval religious practice, a sanctuary, was most recently recuperated in the movement to protect Central American refugees in the 1980s and the contemporary idea of sanctuary cities. This interdisciplinary panel explores sanctuary's legal, political, social, and historical connotations as well as its strategic uses. What could the designation of sanctuary spaces on university campuses mean for strategies of mobilization and resistance now and in the future?
