Campus Watch Speaking Engagement: Philanthropy Roundtable Conference, Washington D.C.

On Wednesday, October 10, I'll be a panelist at a Philanthropy Roundtable higher education conference at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C. titled, "Middle Eastern Studies, Higher Education, and the Fight Against Terror."

The Philanthropy Roundtable is an organization that provides advice and counsel to donors in order to help them "achieve their charitable objectives," which include higher education. I'll be speaking about the problems in Middle East studies and what Campus Watch is doing to address them.

The conference moderator is Mugged By Reality author John Agresto and fellow speakers include Cliff May and David Silverstein of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and Middle East scholar Martin Kramer. The event is invitation only, but I'll be sure to report back on any interesting developments.

Get em all! I hope you have a list of all those Muslims trying to teach our kids! We should have some patriotism/ Christianity test for them before they can teach at our American universities!

Paul, Here's the bio on that suspicious sounding "teacher." She sounds like she should be "checked out." Clearly a danger to rational thought in America:

Prof. Abu El-Haj joined the Anthropology Department in fall, 2002. Previously, she held fellowships at Harvard University’s Academy for International and Area Studies, the University of Pennsylvania Mellon Program, and the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. She is, in addition, a former Fulbright Fellow and a recipient of awards from the SSRC-McArthur Grant in International Peace and Security, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and the National Endowment for the Humanities among others. Professor Abu El-Haj has lectured widely at the New York Academy of Sciences, New York University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, the University of Cambridge, the London School of Economics (LSE), and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) of the University of London. Prior to her arrival at Barnard College and Columbia University she served on the faculty of the Anthropology Department at the University of Chicago.

In 2001 she published Facts on the Ground: Archaeological Practice and Territorial Self-Fashioning in Israeli Society (Chicago University Press), now in its second printing. In 2002 this book won the Middle East Studies Association’s Albert Hourani Annual Book Award for the best book published on the Middle East that year (an honor it shared with Gershon Shafir and Yoav Peled’s Being Israeli: the Dynamics of Multiple Citizenship).
