Faculty Against Antisemitism Movement (FAAM)

Miriam Elman and Andrew Pessin on BIPACT News

by Laura Kessler

Miriam Elman, Executive Director of the Academic Engagement Network and founder of the Faculty Against Antisemitism Movement, sits down with Campus Correspondent Andrew Pessin to discuss the role of faculty leadership in both the rise of antisemitism, and in the prevention of it.

Dr. Miriam F. Elman has served as Executive Director of the Academic Engagement Network (AEN) since 2019. From 2009-2022, she was an Associate Professor of Political Science at Syracuse University, where she held the title of Robert D. McClure Professor of Teaching Excellence at the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs. An award-winning scholar and teacher, Dr. Elman has edited and co-edited six books and a number of special issues for academic journals, including Israel Studies. She is the author of over 70 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters on topics related to contemporary antisemitism, academic freedom and campus free expression, peace and conflict resolution, religion and politics in Israel, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Dr. Elman received her B.A. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and her M.Phil. and Ph.D. from Columbia University. She has held pre- and post-doctoral fellowships at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School, and was a tenured member of the faculty at Arizona State University before moving to Syracuse. Dr. Elman has delivered hundreds of guest lectures in her areas of expertise and has been frequently featured in Haaretz, The Jerusalem Post, The New York Times, The Times of Israel, Washington Post, Inside Higher Ed, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Washington Examiner, JNS, Jewish Journal, JWeekly and The Forward, among other media outlets. In recognition of her work, in 2018 The Algemeiner listed her among the top 100 people worldwide who are positively influencing Jewish life.
