ABSTRACT
This article discusses political attempts to limit the academic discourse in Arab and Muslim studies. The motivations of activists including David Horowitz and the National Association of Scholars in their efforts to organize university students are considered. Efforts by these organizations to limit the funding of ethnic and area studies are described in terms of their characterizations of Muslims and Arab people as part of a homogeneous and barbaric civilization.
