The Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies, dedicated to informed research and teaching on the Middle East, rejects anti-Semitism and all forms of racism and bias. Unfortunately, a musical performer at the Consortium’s recent conference on “Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics, and Possibilities,” made remarks that were inexcusable. We apologize for the hurt his comments have caused and we are saddened that this scholarly event was marred by association with anti-Semitism. We as a Consortium join the leaders of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University in reaffirming our commitment to educational opportunities free of all forms of hate.
