Dr. Shabaneh taught at Marymount Manhattan College in the Department of International Studies and, more recently, chaired the department. A highly respected colleague and scholar of the Middle East, Dr. Shabaneh was beloved in the Marymount Manhattan community. Students, faculty, and staff appreciated the sensitivity and care he demonstrated when teaching about and discussing the complicated issues inherent in Middle East politics. The MMC community now deeply mourns his loss and extends condolences to Dr. Shabaneh’s family and friends during this difficult time.
