Kristofer Petersen-Overton Gets His Job Back

We are delighted to announce that Brooklyn College has reversed its decision and approved the hiring of Kristofer Petersen-Overton for the course in Middle East Politics for this spring. Congratulations to Mr. Petersen-Overton, who calmly stood his ground, and to the Brooklyn College Political Science Department, who stood with him, and to the hundreds of PSC members and scholars across the country who protested the violation of academic freedom.
