A Tenure Track Job in the US, Anti-Islamification Demonstrations in Germany, and the Redefinition of Classics

The Department of Classics at Tufts University is looking at candidates for a tenure track assistant professor who works on Greco-Roman and Islamic Cultures. Since the demonstrations against Islamification in Germany became prominent in Dresden and now have cropped up at Leipzig, my German home, I thought about the connection between the two. This position can do a lot more now if it properly exploits digital media and helps to change the public understanding of what we in Europe and North America already owe to the achievements of Islamic culture.
