- Sarah Schulman's 'Conflict is not Abuse' is Essential Reading For Activist Communities
Resource Type: Article
In her 18th book, writer and Distinguished Professor of English at CUNY Staten Island Sarah Schulman takes on the weighty topic of interpersonal conflict, abusive behavior, the "overstatement of harm," and how the continued mistaking of conflict for abuse leads to unnecessary escalation of various problems -- often leading to cruel acts of isolation, shunning, scapegoating, and other manifestations of in-group bullying that are used to justify keeping certain people out of families, circles of friends, affinity groups, and activist communities.
