Defend Academic Freedom: Support Professor Joseph Massad

Time:
10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Event Type:
Critical Mass
Organizer/Author:
Omar Khan
Location Details:

Please take a minute to sign this petition for free speech: Professor Massad is a non-tenured Professor of Middle Eastern and Asian Studies at Columbia. Because of his non-zionist position, he has been blacklisted by university donors with financial retributions against the university if he remains as a Professor at Columbia, calls for the dismissal of an academic colleague based solely on political rumors and, most alarmingly, by the intervention of a member of Congress with ambitions for higher office. The attacks come from sources who have no role to play in making assessments about academic matters such as professional standing or tenure decisions.
