Event Description

As part of the Department of Politics and Government’s 50th anniversary year activities, Dr. Steven Salaita will deliver the annual Bone Lecture in Fall 2016. His talk will be titled “Critical Thinking in a Neoliberal Age.”
Dr. Salaita is a scholar of American Indian Studies, an author, and a public speaker. He currently holds the position of Edward W. Said Chair of American Studies at the American University of Beirut. Salaita’s career attracted national media attention when the University of Illinois withdrew its offer of employment as a tenured professor over Salaita’s controversial tweets on the 2014 Israel/Gaza conflict.
