Dec 25, 2013 — Most students and faculty are on winter break now, but various organizations have continued to pressure the American Studies Association to rescind its resolution to boycott Israeli universities. The latest is the American Association of Universities composed of research universities in the United States: The next battleground is the Modern Language Association meeting in Chicago, January 6-9, 2014, and on the grounds of insuring academic freedom we stand in opposition to efforts to boycott Israeli universities in that organization as we did with the ASA.
