U. of California at Berkeley Reinstates Course on Palestine
by Fernanda Zamudio-Suaréz
The University of California at Berkeley has reinstated an undergraduate course about the history of Palestine that it suspended on Tuesday, September 13, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.
Last week Carla Hesse, dean of the College of Letters and Science, suspended the ethnic-studies course "Palestine: A Colonial Settler Analysis" over concerns that it was framed with a particular political agenda and may have violated UC policy against partisan courses and political indoctrination, according to a letter she wrote to the chairs of the social-sciences division and to the Academic Senate.
