Schulman will talk about her controversial and provocative book Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair. Conflict Is Not Abuse, about the culture of scapegoating and blame as it applies in scenarios ranging from personal relationships to geopolitics, has been widely acclaimed; winner of the Publishing Triangle’s Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Non-Fiction, it has also been shortlisted for the Queer/Art Prize and Lambda Literary Award, and longlisted for the Brooklyn Public Library Literary Prize.

Her latest non-fiction book is Conflict Is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair. Her many honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship (Playwriting), a Fulbright Fellowship (Judaic Studies), and the Kessler Award for Lifetime Contribution to LGBT Studies.
