Ibrahim Abu-Lughod (1929-2001)

Ibrahim Abu-Lughod is one of the original founders of Arab Studies Quarterly (ASQ) and its parent orga nization, the Association of Arab-American University GAAUG).graduates

-       - He graduated from the Aamiriyah school at Jaffa in the fateful year of 1948.

-       - He lived through the 1982 Israeli siege of Beirut when Sabra and Shatila massacre took place.

-       -  It was Abu-Lughod, along with some of the most prominent leaders of the Arab-American intellectual community like Edward Said, Hisham  Sharabi, Naseer Aruri, Michael Suleiman, Elaine Hagopian, M. Cherif Bassiouni, Fouad Moghrabi, and Hassan Haddad who founded AAUG following the disaster of June 1967.

-       -  Arab Studies Quarterly emerged under the direction of its first editors, Abu-Lughod and Edward Said as the voice of Arab-American academics who sought to reclaim a position of authority in defining major Arab issues in the American environment.

-       -  Abu-Lughod was also a founder of the Chicago-based Palestine Human Rights Campaign, a religious and secular coalition dedicated to the exposure of the cruel fate of Palestinians under Israeli occupation. He worked with Rev. Don Wagner, Rev. Darrel Meyers, Professor Rosemary Ruether, Professor Francis Boyle, and others to build this grass- roots organization.

-       - Abu-Lughod's home academic institution was Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, where he served for many years as the Chair of the Department of Political Science. There he mentored future Middle East scholars like Deborah Gerner and Mark Tessler, and where he produced his best published work. His publications included many books, articles and opinion pieces in Arabic and English, including: The Arab Rediscovery of Europe; The Arab-Israeli Confrontation of June 1967; Invasion of Lebanon, co-edited with Iqbal Ahmad; Palestinian Rights: Affirmation and Denial; Settler Regimes in South Africa and the Arab World. His edited work, The Transformation of Palestine (with a forward by Arnold J. Toynbee) remains a classic work to this day.

-       -  His determination to maintain contact with Palestine drove him back to Ramallah and Birzeit University where he worked in his later years on improving the educational standards of Arab schools in the nascent state of his homeland.

-       -  Ibrahim Abu-Lughod passed away on 23 May 2001, in Ramallah, Palestine.
