Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Corey Robin (The Reactionary Mind, coreyrobin.com)

Sarah brings Corey on The Posner Show to talk about the controversial “boycott, divestment and sanctions” (BDS) panel recently held at Brooklyn College. Corey tells the story of the backlash against the panel, and the threat to academic freedom that it posed. Sarah and Corey debate the wisdom of the backlash, and Corey describes the BDS event itself. Would this type of event cause as much controversy at a different school? Finally, Corey argues that Brooklyn College is changing—and that this isn’t a bad thing.
