When I was an undergrad at Fordham, my friends and I tried to form a chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). The student government voted to approve our application, but the dean of students overruled that vote and prohibited us from attaining official club status on campus. So we filed a lawsuit. Last week, we won: a judge ordered Fordham to recognize SJP as a university-sanctioned club. I wrote about it for The Nation.
I spoke with historian Isa Blumi, author of Destroying Yemen: What Chaos in Arabia Tells Us About the World (UC Press, 2018) about the conflict in Yemen for The Nation.
Read my coverage of the protest against David Petraeus at the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations (SHAFR) in The Nation.
