ABSTRACT
The article discusses some thoughts on academic boycotts. It is not easy for any academic to call for a boycott, people's lives are committed to the production and sharing of knowledge, a commitment and practice called as academic freedom. However, that freedom cannot be understood without reference to the material conditions of knowledge production and sharing, specifically, in the context of this discussion, in the case of Israeli and Palestinian universities. In On Academic Boycotts, the AAUP opens its account of the origins of the present discussion with the resolutions by the British Association of University Teachers calling for the boycott of two Israeli universities, Bar-Ilan and Haifa.
