Norman Finkelstein: Resigns at DePaul U., After Deal Forestalls Threats to Defy University

Historians in the News

Norman G. Finkelstein, the controversial political scientist who was denied tenure at DePaul University last spring, had planned to attempt to return to his office here on the campus this morning, even though he had been placed on administrative leave and his courses had been canceled. He had said that he was willing to be arrested if the university stopped him, and that he was even planning to begin a hunger strike.

None of that was necessary.

Mr. Finkelstein and the university have reached a settlement, and he has resigned.
