This is the first time this semester I’ll have a public speaking engagement. My travel schedule and other commitments just haven’t permitted it otherwise.

In the past, it’s been great to meet LI readers at such events, so if you are within driving distance of Cambridge, MA, bookmark December 4. Or maybe you have relatives, friends or children in the area who might be interested.

The event title is “War By Other Means: Israel, BDS and the Campus.”

The day-long event will be held at Harvard Law School, my alma mater. It is open to the public, but non-students have to pay a registration fee (it is free for students). The “early-bird” sign up price is good only through November 23. You can sign up here.

My hour-long presentation will be on the history of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (something I write about *occasionally*). LI author Prof. Miriam Elman will be speaking on issues of faculty promotion of BDS and free speech/academic freedom.

The event is hosted by The Harvard Law School Alliance for Israel and sponsored by CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America).

CAMERA is a media watchdog group, which among other things, publishes UK Media Watch and BBC Watch (edited by our friends Adam Levick and Hadar Sela).

You may recall the CAMERA billboards on a building facing the offices of the NY Times, calling out anti-Israel bias.

Here is the event poster:

There also will be student speakers, including Rezwan Ovo Haq:

Seriously, would be great if some LI readers attended. Look how happy Philly Guy was in this photo when we met at my speech in Rochester, NY (you can view the speech here). Even happier than the night Trump won.
