The leaders of the Modern Language Association and other scholarly groups have added their voices to the chorus of academics calling on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to reconsider its decision not to hire a professor who has drawn scrutiny for his harsh criticisms of Israel.
Steven G. Salaita had been offered a job as a tenured professor of American Indian studies, but his appointment was subject to approval by the university’s Board of Trustees. The university told Mr. Salaita it would not bring his appointment before the board, saying it believed the board’s approval was unlikely.
