Academic Freedom: The Struggle for Palestine on Campus Continues
I am honoured to be on one of the panels at Columbia College on October 8 with Steven Salaita, fired from a tenured position at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his viewpoint on the Middle East conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. Also it will be a pleasure to panel with Iymen Chehade, who had a course section removed due to a student complaint of 5 Broken Cameras: an award-nominated film on the West Bank striving of the Palestinians. Professor Chehade and I are on Illinois Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure. For updates and current schedule see Facebook and AAUP Academe Blog.
