RSVP here.
Join us on November 18th for a talk with Steven Salaita, a scholar uniquely bridging Native American Studies and the politics and culture of US engagement with Arab Americans and the Middle East. He is the author of several books, including The Holy Land in Transit: Colonialism And the Quest for Canaan (Middle East Studies Beyond Dominant Paradigms).Salaita is currently engaged in a battle over academic freedom and dissent that began with his firing from UIUC in September 2014, and has since exploded to international debate about the tension between the notion of civility and critiques of racism and empire. The talk will focus on Salaita’s research and writing.Dinner provided!

Prof. Salaita’s talk is a collaboration of unSettled: NYU Native/Indigenous Studies Speaker Series 2014-2015, NYU Students for Justice in Palestine, NYU’s Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, NYU Native Studies Forum, Students Creating Radical Change, Queer Union, Radical Film and Lecture Series, and Center for Multicultural Education and Programs, and a growing list of sponsoring departments and programs.
