How to Evacuate Israelis from the West Bank
mentioned Brent Sasley, assistant professor of political science at UT
Arlington, in an article that looked at how to evacuate 100,000 Israelis
from the West Bank. The story referenced the Oxford Research Group’s
report, which lays out options for various compensation schemes, as well
as mechanisms for the international community to make constructive
contributions on this front. The Atlantic stated: “The [Oxford] report
also suggests how to change the narrative so that the returning settlers
can be seen as the ‘new pioneers,’ reclaiming much of the nationalist
zeal that brought them to the West Bank in the first place – an idea
that is also fleshed out in a thoughtful article in International
Journal by Brent Sasley and Mira Sucharov.”
Dallas International Film Festival screens "Wolf"
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram interviewed
Ya’Ke Smith, filmmaker and assistant professor of film at UT Arlington,
about his academic career and his first-feature length movie, “Wolf,”
which will screen Saturday and Wednesday at the Dallas International
Film Festival. It is a sad and timely drama about an
African-American teen who is being molested by his pastor. “If you
follow my work, none of it is nice,” Smith said. “I think film should be
a mirror to show us: ‘This is the world we live in. Let’s look at it
and let’s correct it.’”
