The Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Alsaud Center for American Studies and Research (CASAR) will be hosting the following events during Fall 2015-2016:
Uncivil Rights: Palestine and the Limits of Academic Freedom
Lecturer: Dr. Steven Salaita
Affiliation: Edward Said Chair of American Studies, CASAR, AUB
Date: 14 September 2015
Place: Conf. A, building 37 (behind the old Lee observatory)
The talk will situate my firing and subsequent lawsuit within broader issues of academic freedom, administrative repression, the corporatization of campuses, and the decline of the public university. I'll examine how Palestine often acts as an avatar of these issues.
