1. Fragment from the breach: As an untenured scholar whose research agenda for the last dozen years has included a focus on the complex cultural life of Israel/Palestine in the United States, I join many in considering this year’s meeting of the American Studies Association historic, enlivening, and, in scholar and poet Fred Moten’s deceptively simple words, “refreshing.” The ASA, its membership, and its leadership is presently asking itself a question so many have asked for so long and from so many different quarters.
