HeadlineJun 17, 2024

The center revoked its job offer to Raz Segal, who is an Israeli Jew, after two members of its advisory board resigned to protest the hiring of Segal, who has called Israel’s war on Gaza “a textbook case of genocide.” Hundreds of professors have since signed a letter condemning the university’s decision.
