Middle East studies in the News
Birzeit on the Hudson? [incl. Rashid Khalidi]
World Jewish Daily
As Columbia University launches its Center for Palestine Studies, the first of its kind in the United States, blogger Martin Kramer asks whether the new center will earn the university the moniker "Birzeit on the Hudson."
While the center's co-founder Rashid Khalidi defines its area of study as the "historical territory covered today by Israel, the West Bank and Gaza" Kramer wonders whether the center will not be "a redoubt of militant Palestinian nationalism in the guise of scholarship."
