Description

In 2014, renowned professor Steven Salaita had his appointment to a tenured professorship revoked by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in response to his tweets criticizing the Israeli government's assault on Gaza.

Salaita's firing generated a huge public outcry, with thousands petitioning for his reinstatement and more than five thousand scholars pledging to boycott UIUC.

His case raises important questions about academic freedom, free speech on campus and the movement for justice in Palestine.

In Uncivil Rites, Salaita reflects upon the controversy.
