Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Steven Salaita speaks about his new book on the neo-liberial/ Zionist influence at the University of Illinois-UC that has undermined academic freedom, the academy and abused academics willing challenge centers of power; in his case his tweets on the war crimes of a foreign government. Nadine Nabor and Rod Ferguson, both professors at UIC join him with their observations on his comments.

Salaita sued for breach of contract following his framing and dismissal by Chancellor Phylis Weiss who illegally rescinded his tenured position in the American Indian Studies Program after prominent donors threatened to withdraw funding because of his critique of Israeli policy and war crimes. Weiss was later fired after it was discovered she tried to destroy the email record of communications behind her decision. Salita was awarded $800,000 for breach of contract as the result of his law suit. The UIUC has been ethically and academically tarnished and the students
have been denied access to an opportunity
to see the world through his insights on colonial power relations and imaging.
