Briefly, scholars face hostility and job insecurity when they choose to teach or engage in studies involving Palestine, and especially Israel's victimization of Palestine, while failing to embrace the Zionist mantra that Palestinians are terrorists.

In this 53-minute episode we feature an incisive presentation by Northwestern University anthropologist Jessica Winegar. She takes a long critical look at the minefield of Middle East studies in academia today through her new book, Anthropology’s Politics: Disciplining the Middle East.

This talk, based on the book co-authored with Lara Deeb, examines the complex pressures that shape how U.S. scholars research and teach about the Middle East. Using ethnographic and archival research on Middle East anthropology as a lens onto the broader politics of the U.S. academy, it reveals the persistent consequences of ongoing racism, sexism, Islamophobia, and anti-Palestinian prejudice within the academy.

Jessica Winegar gave this talk recently at Tufts University. She is introduced by Tufts Anthropology Professor, Amahl Bishara.
