Nicholas De Genova was a professor of Anthropology and Latino Studies from 2000-2009.
During a 2003 teach-in to protest the Iraq War, he called for the defeat of the US invasion, sparking a nationwide controversy and a campaign by Republican politicians to have him fired. CU President Lee Bollinger announced that De Genova had "crossed the line." A few years after the scandal, De Genova was denied promotion to Associate Professor and terminated.
