SHEEHAN: Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan Delivers Luncheon Remarks | John and Frances Angelos Law Center | University of Baltimore | 9 Sept 2015

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan, Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs, accepted the 2015 President’s Faculty Award at a luncheon held in his honor on September 9. Audio from Dr. Sheehan’s remarks picks up approximately 10 seconds into his remarks, following a generous introduction by President Kurt Schmoke, and lasts approximately 40 minutes.

The President’s Faculty Award is the highest honor bestowed on a faculty member annually. Recipients have made outstanding contributions to teaching, research, and service in support of the university’s mission.

Below is a summary of the selection committee’s assessment:

“Dr. Sheehan is a highly regarded faculty member who reflects the University of Baltimore’s highest standards. In his time at the University of Baltimore he has published six scholarly articles, a book, a peer-reviewed book chapter and many other chapters and research monographs. His numerous works and presentations have significant impact on the fields of terrorism and counterterrorism, insurgency, conflict management and political oppression. He is also an outstanding teacher. In a letter submitted in support of his nomination, Dr. Larry Thomas – former Dean of the College of Public Affairs – indicated that “…his student evaluations are among the highest that I have seen during all my years serving both as a faculty member and as an administrator at the university.””

SHEEHAN: The Ivory Tower and the Iranian Regime | | Commentary

In response to Nicholas Kristof’s recent column in The New York TimesDr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan weighs in at on why scholars should examine policy issues and inform the public discourse.

As Washington looks for fresh ideas on Iran policy in the lead up to the next round of nuclear discussions in March, policymakers would be wise to examine some of the sharpest thinkers on Iran and adopt policy prescriptions informed by scholarly analyses.

The unfortunate decision to investigate banality may be the characteristic that distinguishes the contemporary ivory tower from the public forum.

But not every intellectual suffers from the affliction and some have ideas that could inform policy decisions.
