Popular Georgetown Assistant Professor of Middle East Politics Denied Tenure

JUNE 13, 2013

Samer Shehata, a distinguished scholar of Middle East politics and current affairs, and an assistant professor at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, is challenging Georgetown’s denial of his tenure application. Despite his strong publication record, excellent teaching evaluations, and dedicated service to the university community, Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service refused to recommend him for tenure, apparently due to the unjustified rejection of his research based on the views he expressed on these controversial issues. This dispute has led to extensive coverage, including the Georgetown Voice and The Hoya.
