Uncivil Rites:Palestine and the Limits of Academic Freedom
A Book Talk Steven Salaita & Panel Discussion
In the summer of 2014, renowned American Indian studies professor Steven Salaita had his appointment to a tenured professorship revoked by the board of trustees of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Salaita’s employment was terminated in response to his public tweets criticizing Israeli government policy.
Salaita’s case raises important questions about academic freedom, free speech on campus, and the movement for justice in Palestine.
In his new book Uncivil Rites, Salaita combines personal reflection and political critique to shed new light on his controversial termination. He situates his case at the intersection of important issues that affect both higher education and social justice activism.
Steven Salaita currently holds the Edward W. Said Chair of American Studies at the American University of Beirut.

Thank you for your interest in attending our screening of the Black Panthers:Vanguard of the Revolution. Unfortunately, the screening is sold out. Many people expressed interest in attending this screening and the screening sold out much earlier than we expected. For this reason, we have arranged to have a screening on campus in mid to late November. At that point, we will reach out first to everyone who RSVP'd for next Friday's screening, but did not get a ticket. We apologize that you will not be able to attend next week's screening, but hope you will attend the screening on campus in November.
