    April 8, Steven Salaita 11-1 at The Evergreen State College

    By kristina | 03/30/2015

    Indigenous Peoples and Academic Freedom in the New Era of Civility  Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 11am – 1pm Lecture Hall I The Evergreen State College Olympia, Washington Free and Open to the Public

    Salaita is a former Associate Professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. In August 2014 the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign withdrew a formal offer of employment to Steven Salaita in response to his Twitter posts critical of Israel’s attack on Gaza that summer. This unprecedented move on the part of the university has drawn international attention to efforts to silence faculty and students on North American campuses for speaking in support of Palestinian human rights. The Chronicle of Higher Education named Salaita to its 2014 Influence List.

    Steven Salaita is an independent scholar and author of six books including Israel’s Dead Soul (2011); Modern Arab American Fiction: A Reader’s Guide (2011); The Holy Land in Transit: Colonialism and the Quest for Canaan (2006); and Anti-Arab Racism in the USA: Where It Comes from and What It Means for Politic (2006), winner of an Outstanding Book Award from the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights.
