Andrew Pessin, the once popular Connecticut College philosophy professor, was subjected to an academic smear campaign for his August 11, 2014 Facebook post in defense of Israel during Operation Protective Edge against Hamas.
Pessin resumed teaching last fall after an extended paid sabbatical and together with a colleague convinced the school to establish a Jewish Studies program. Recently, Pessin edited a new book with Fordham University’s Doron Ben-Atar on the general campus trend “Anti-Zionism on Campus: The University, Free Speech, and BDS.”
