Emory Professor Kenneth Stein Recognized for 25 Years of Accomplishments in International Studies

Professor Kenneth W. Stein is the recipient of Emory University’s 2002 Marion V. Creekmore Award, given in recognition of 25 years of service to the internationalization of the university. A past recipient of the Williams Teaching Award, Emory’s highest award for teaching, Stein was recognized by his peers and Emory President William M. Chace for his pioneering and multiple contributions to the university during a ceremony in late February.

Stein is the William E. Schatten Professor of Contemporary Middle Eastern History, Political Science and Israeli Studies, director of both the Middle East Research Program and the Institute for the Study of Modern Israel, and a Middle East fellow of The Carter Center.

Stein is known for his outstanding scholarship and promotion of Middle Eastern studies. During his career, Stein established Emory’s Center for International Studies and served as the first executive director of The Carter Center, integrating the center’s programming with the university.

In addition, Stein guided the evolution of several international studies programs, raising funds to develop courses and provide for faculty salaries. He also has taught in the executive programs of the Goizueta Business School, and moderated and produced the Georgia Public Television program "World In Review." Stein came to Emory in 1977 after earning his graduate degrees from the University of Michigan and his bachelor’s degree from Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania.

Stein teaches courses on modern Middle Eastern history and politics, the modern Arab world and Israel. His class "History, Politics and Diplomacy of the Arab-Israeli Conflict" is one of Emory’s most popular undergraduate lecture courses.

His latest book, "Heroic Diplomacy: Sadat, Kissinger, Carter, Begin and the Quest for Arab-Israeli Peace," has received high praise from peers in the United States and in the Middle East.

Stein is resident of Atlanta (30342).
