“The one things happen to”: Robert Launay & Noura Erakat


Taking a line from Jorge Luis Borges’ Labyrinths, we set out to read and re-imagine the Other on this week’s episode of Open Stacks (our last before summer break), with Professor of Anthropology Robert Launay, who joins us in the stacks to help us think of others through the eyes of Savages, Romans, and Despots, and Palestinian American legal scholar and human rights attorney Noura Erakat on Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine. Plus, our booksellers share serendipitous discoveries while wandering (i.e., shelving) in the stacks.
