EPISODE DESCRIPTION

OccuPodcast, episode #2. Feb.14, 2012. Today I Spoke with Derin Korman, a teaching fellow in Visual and Environmental Studies and Hannah L. Hofheinz, who is a Th.D candidate at Harvard Divinity School. Both are organizes with Occupy Harvard. A Feb. 12th press release from Occupy Harvard explains the reason for targeting the Library:
“At 6 pm on Sunday February 3, 2012, two-dozen Harvard students and affiliates claimed a corner of the Lamont Library Café at Harvard University. The New Harvard Library Occupation was announced on the Occupy Harvard website: “We intend to open a persistent community space for critical thought, engaged learning, and insistent action in the Lamont Library Café.”
The group plans to hold study breaks, film screenings, knowledge shares, and facilitated discussions about many issues including access to higher education, the ongoing privatization of the university, and Harvard’s role in facilitating neo-liberalism worldwide. Topics for upcoming think-tank discussions include: “The role of knowledge in promoting social equality and social justice,” and “What is a library? What does the library of the future look like?” The group intends to maintain a presence in the cafe until Friday February 17th at 10 pm.”
