Criticism but credit where credit is due?

Reader comment on item: Five Years of Campus Watch

Submitted by dlp (China), Sep 20, 2007 at 09:37

1. Campus Watch does a great job of revealing the problems with academics and Middle East Studies departments in American universities, but it seems to lack a positive program of highlighting the credible academics and Middle East Studies departments for students who are serious about educating themselves. I am interested in continuing post-graduate education but have no clue where I can study Islam, counter-terrorism and the like. There simply isn't the same effort gone into publicizing the (probably few) trustworthy individuals and universities on Campus Watch.

2. Can Campus Watch widen its scope beyond the US? At least start with other Anglosphere countries - the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. I know Monash has an International Terrorism MA with some modules on Islam but it looks hopeless. I am sure there is great value in broadening it out.
