Dr. Ayal Feinberg, assistant professor of political science at Texas A&M University-Commerce, received a $3,000 grant from the Academic Engagement Network (AEN). The grant comes as part of Feinberg’s appointment as the Junior Faculty Selection Chair of AEN. Feinberg utilizes his position to organize networking events and professional opportunities for scholars that share the missions of AEN. The organization is an independently run nonprofit that seeks to promote campus free expression and academic freedom, support research, education and robust dialogue about Israel, and counter antisemitism. The grant funding will be used to provide innovative on-campus programming including the webinar “Future of Bigotry: Racism & Extremism in America,” which is being hosted by the A&M-Commerce Department of Political Science on February 18.
