African Literature Association Endorses Israel Boycott

The African Literature Association is among a growing number of scholarly organizations that have backed the boycott of Israeli universities. In the rationale for its resolution, approved by the membership at the ALA’s annual meeting in Johannesburg, the association said that the resolution “is offered in the spirit of the past boycott of Apartheid South Africa, one of the ALA’s earliest efforts at political coalition politics.” 

Leaders of the African Literature Association, which is headquartered at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, in New York State, did not return messages seeking comment on Monday. Other U.S.-based disciplinary associations that have endorsed the academic boycott of Israel include the American Studies Association, the Association for Asian American Studies, the Critical Ethnic Studies Association, and the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association. American college presidents have widely condemned the boycott as violating principles of academic freedom.
