Ghassan Hage, a future generation professor of anthropology and social theory at the University of Melbourne, presented a topic titled 'Is Islamophobia Accelerating Global Warming?' on Monday at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The presentation, sponsored by the school's Global Studies and Languages Department, delved into "an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation," according to an online promotion for the event, reports Fox News.

What remains unclear is who invited Hage to present the topic, who at MIT approved the topic for presentation, how many people attended the lecture, and was Hage paid to present the topic.

In April, Hage presented at Columbia University on a talk titled "On Exterminability: The Affective Culture of Settler-Colonialism Today" sponsored by the Center for Palestine Studies.

According to Fox News, Hage, born in Lebanon, is writing a book on the would-be Islamophobia/global warming relationship, and that his background includes promoting anti-Israel sentiments. For example, Hage is a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement, reports the site.

Hage is the author of several books exploring race in Australia, including, White Nation and Against Paranoid Nationalism. He teaches in the Social and Political Sciences Department at the university.
