Stone Men

Fri, Feb 14    1pm

A discussion of Stone Men: The Palestinians Who Built Israel by Andrew Ross in conversation with Kadambari Baxi, Jordan Carver, Laura Diamond Dixit, Lindsey Wikstrom, and Mabel O. Wilson.

Stone Men records the lives and labor of Palestinian workers in the West Bank ‘s stone industry and charts their contribution to the design and construction of the region’s built environment. In response to the question Who Built Israel?, the book looks into the historical record and finds that Palestinians have always been at the center of the construction workforce, despite efforts, over the decades, to replace them. What rights, in the form of political sweat equity, should accrue to this workforce?

Andrew Ross is Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and Director of the American Studies Program at NYU. A contributor to the Guardian,the New York Times,* The Nation, and *Al Jazeera, he is the author or editor of more than twenty books, including Creditocracy and the Case for Debt Refusal, Bird On Fire, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Fast Boat to China, No-Collar, and The Celebration Chronicles. His new book Stone Men: The Palestinians Who Built Israel, was the winner of a Palestine Book Award.

Free and open to the public. Copies of Stone Men will be available for sale.
