Steven Salaita is 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 the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign 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 will be served.

This program will take place in NYU Kimmel Center for University Life, Room 905.
