The Edward Said Memorial Lecture with Noam Chomsky: “The Unipolar Moment and the Culture of Imperialism”


Thursday, December 3, 6:15pm

Altschlul Auditorium, 417

International Affairs Building

Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor and professor emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, delivers the 5th Annual Edward Said Memorial Lecture. Chomsky (born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, political activist, author, and lecturer. He is well-known in the academic and scientific community as one of the fathers of modern linguistics. Since the 1960s, he has become known more widely as a political dissident, an anarchist, and a libertarian socialist intellectual.

Noam Chomsky has been a dedicated opponent of war and injustice for more than half a century. His dozens of books and writings for innumerable journals have made him one of the best-known radical voices in the U.S. and around the world, responsible for contributing to the commitment and shaping the thinking of countless people. Noam Chomsky is a regular contributor to the International Socialist Review (ISR) and has a new book coming out with Haymarket Books. Today, principled voices against US Imperialism are more important than ever as Obama sets to send tens of thousands more troops to Afghanistan.

Check out this article by Chomsky on “This Century’s Challenges” in Issue 61of the ISR at: http://www.isreview.org/issues/61/feat-chomsky.shtml
