Podcast Interview: Peter Kirstein discusses Columbia College censorship of Arab professor

By Ray Hanania

IymenChahadeFacebookPortraitPeter Kirstein, vice president of the Illinois Conference of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), discusses a recent AAUP report which concluded that Columbia College Professor Iymen Chehade had been discriminated against by the College following an anonymous complaint that was made accusing him of bias in his class instruction addressing the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The report described Columbia College’s actions as “inappropriate, arbitrary and a violation of Instructor Chehade’s academic freedom.” Kirstein is also Ph.D Chairman of the Illinois Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure, and a Professor of History at Saint Xavier University.

The AAUP website is www.ILAAUP.org.

The program is hosted by Ray Hanania, managing editor of the Arab Daily News online at www.TheArabDailyNews.com
