Barnard Tenures Scholar Opposed by Massive Campaign [on Nadia Abu El-Haj; ref. Juan Cole, Norman Finkelstein]
by Scott Jaschik
In one of the most publicly contested tenure cases of the year, Barnard College announced Friday that it would promote Nadia Abu El-Haj, an anthropologist whose work on archaeology in Israel led to a major campaign against her.
A statement released by the college did not directly speak to the controversy that has raged around Abu El-Haj. "Like all tenured members of the Barnard faculty, Professor Abu El-Haj has successfully passed a highly rigorous review that involves both Barnard's own independent process and a university-wide review [at Columbia University] that reflects Barnard's partnership with Columbia and the participation of Barnard faculty in Columbia's graduate programs," the statement said.
