Basileus Zeno Accepts A Teaching Position at York University!

Recent graduate student Basileus Zeno from the Department of Political Science accepted a position as Sessional Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at York University. He was also offered two post-docs in Canada: The Simons Foundation Canada Postdoctoral Fellow and the Arts Without Borders Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Ottawa; which he turned down in favor of the position at York. On top of this professional achievement he has recently published two articles: “The Making of Sects: Boundary-Making and the Sectarianization of the Syrian Uprising, 2011-2013,” Nations and Nationalism. 28(3),1040-1060 (open access) and “Education and Alienation: The Case of Displaced Syrians,” Digest of Middle East Studies, 30(4), 284-294. He also contributed to a report on the Boston Asylum Office for the ACLU of Maine, which has gained support of Congress members in New England who have called for a federal investigation into the Boston Asylum Office. You can send your congratulations to Basileus at WAY TO GO BASILEUS!!! (York University, 09/2022)
