The Council voted for an academic boycott of Israeli institutions as an ethical stance, a form of material and symbolic action. It represents a principle of solidarity with scholars and students deprived of their academic freedom and an aspiration to enlarge that freedom for all, including Palestinians.

Anan Ameri, former director of the Arab American National Museum sent this to ASA:
The Caucus on Academic and Community Activism is calling for the American Studies Association to support the call for boycott of Israeli universities in protest of the illegal occupation of Palestine, the infringements of the right to education of Palestinian students, and the academic freedom of Palestinian scholars and students in the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel.
Following the annual meeting of the American Studies Association (ASA) in Washington D.C. on November 21-24, 2013, the National Council of the ASA voted to endorse the call from Palestinian civil society for an academic boycott of Israel.
The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2014 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA, November 6-9, 2014.
In particular, we seek proposals that address the 2014 Annual Meeting theme: “The Fun and the Fury: New Dialectics of Pleasure and Pain In the Post-American Century.” We likewise encourage panel submissions that engage the Southern California sports-scape, which is ripe for critical inquiry.
We also urge interested parties to consider non-traditional panel formats and the creation of interlocking or related panel sessions. For more information on panel formatting, visit http://www.theasa.net/submit_a_proposal and scroll down to the header marked “Proposal Types.”
