The New School - University In Exile Consortium

The New School invites you to attend the launch of the New University in Exile Consortium - Thursday, September 6 2018

We are living at a time when scholars around the world are under attack, just as when the original University in Exile was established in 1933 to save academic victims of Nazism during World War II. In our own day, universities have once again been shuttered or destroyed; many scholars have been purged from their faculty positions; others seek safety from conflicts that have riven their countries.
