Crisis and Solidarity: A Conversation with Yehuda Sharim and Vilna Bashi Treitler
This event is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute's New Frontiers in Global Research Initiative, through which we invite scholars, artists, and other cultural producers to discuss global challenges that necessitate international cooperation and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Crisis is all around us. In the USA, we live with unnecessary violence and death against poor and nonwhite communities, stark and worsening economic inequality, increased child poverty, youth self-harm and suicide, and many other painful social ills. Covid-19 still ravages our populations more than two years after its discovery, populism and dictatorship have not relented, drought and wildfires expanded, and refugee crises abound. In these circumstances, we can build and strengthen our interpersonal and international solidarities. Yehuda Sharim and Vilna Bashi Treitler, strong believers in self-love and love for our fellows in struggle, will discuss their solidarity with one another and the communities in which they live and move, and invite the audience to join in on the conversation.
