Join us for a conversation with Progressive magazine publisher, Norman Stockwell, together with special guests Noam Chomsky and David Barsamian in an onstage conversation.
Considered the founder of modern linguistics, Noam Chomsky is one of the most cited scholars in modern history. He is also one of the most influential public intellectuals in the world. He has written more than 100 books, his most recent being “Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power.” Professor Chomsky joined the University of Arizona faculty in the fall of 2017, coming from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked since 1955 as professor of linguistics.
One of America’s most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, David Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio—now in its 34th year—and his books with Noam Chomsky, Eqbal Ahmad, Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy and Edward Said. His latest books are with Noam Chomsky: Global Discontents: Rising Threats to Democracy and Edward Said: Culture and Resistance. He lectures on world affairs, imperialism, capitalism, propaganda, the media and global rebellions.
