Weave News videographers Julianne DeGuardi and Erica Sawyer recently had the pleasure of sitting down with scholar and activist Dr. Simona Sharoni (Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the State University of New York in Plattsburgh) during her visit to St. Lawrence University, where she presented a workshop on student and faculty activism. In this interview, part of our ongoing Big Questions project, Sharoni speaks about a range of contemporary issues ranging from the importance of independent media to struggles for social justice in Palestine, on US college campuses, and elsewhere.
