#Occupy Art: Immigration, Nation and the Art of Occupation is a sprawling ten-week course at Stanford University, featuring performances and lectures open to the public. Lavin speaker Jeff Chang—the executive director of Stanford’s Institute for Diversity in the Arts, one of the event’s co-sponsors—will deliver the opening talk, along with H. Sami Alim, on April 4. It’s called “Introduction to the Art of Occupation.” More details here.

"We, the undersigned writers and all who will join us, support Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement around the world."
