In 2011 I joined the faculty at the University of Houston and built its Arab Studies program. In April 2015, UH celebrated the addition of a second faculty member, the AAEF endowed chair in Modern Arab History. For more information on the unprecedented growth of Arab Studies at UH and Houston, see below.
