The current war in/on Gaza continues to reverberate beyond the region. How has it impacted academic research, public scholarship, teaching, and policymaking in institutions of higher education and other research centers? This year’s IMES annual conference prompts us to consider systemic shifts in the US academy and beyond and their significance in shaping knowledge production as the war unfolds. These shifts include institutional changes brought about through the neoliberalization of higher education, including the erosion of faculty governance, the rise of donor influence on university policy, challenges to academic freedom and freedom of speech, the precarity of university faculty and staff, and opposition to frames of decolonization and racialization coming from challenges to scholarly expertise.
