The Academic Engagement Network is pleased to offer a cohort of 21 speakers who will be available in the 2020-21 academic year to give online presentations through AEN member invitations. Their areas of expertise include the history of the BDS movement in academia, Israeli history, society, and politics, antisemitism and anti-Zionism, strategies to counter the BDS narrative, and many other topics relevant to AEN’s agenda.
If invited by an AEN member, each speaker will receive a $1000 honorarium from AEN to give several online presentations to the AEN member’s campus. The format of events may vary, ranging from talks open to the general campus community, to more interactive presentations to individual classes, seminars, or other small group settings, to some combination thereof. Availability will vary by speaker and dates. A list of speakers and their approved topics can be viewed here.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, AEN funding may not be used in connection with any in-person activity, event or gathering, until further notice.
