Barnard professor to join hunger strike
Written by Bwog Staff
Responding to an uncertain statement in this hunger striker post, Bwog e-mailed political science professor Dennis Dalton–who teaches classes on nonviolence and has written a book about Gandhi–to ask whether he was really striking too. He responded thusly:
“Thanks for your message. Yes, as I announced in my class last Thurs., I am in support of the demands and I have joined what I prefer to call the fast rather than hunger strike. Gandhi, about whom I have written extensively, preferred the former term to the latter, but apart from the significant difference in language, I enthusiastically endorse the four demands and I am acting accordingly.
Best wishes, Dennis Dalton”
Et tu, Provost?
UPDATE, 11:30 PM: Dalton told Bwog that he’s drinking water and juice. Good thing his wife Sharron Dalton is a Professor of Nutrition and Food Studies at NYU.
