Teach-in, Poetry, and Dance Party


What's Happening at Hampshire?: A Teach-in, Poetry Reading, & Dance Party

Wednesday, December 4, 7:00-10:00 pm, Majestic Saloon, Northampton

Last spring, many students, staff, faculty, and alums of Hampshire College successfully organized to resist a proposed merger and likely closure of Hampshire College. 

Now, almost a year after the crisis of January 15, what’s happening at Hampshire?

(The short version: We want to let you know what’s up and also dance with you after a long year of struggle, and build solidarity for the year to come!!)

 Join us from 7-8pm for a teach-in, conversation, and poetry reading; and from 8-10pm for an early school-night dance party with DJ Odiosa. 


x SPEAKERS include Michele Hardesty, chapter secretary of Hampshire AAUP, and more TBA x
x POETS Polina Barskova, thúy lê, Nathan McClain x

This event is a fundraiser for the AAUP-HC’s Faculty Legal Support Fund, which exists to support collective legal representation for Hampshire’s faculty employees. 
Suggested donations are $5-$50 at the door, sliding scale, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.*
