British-Pakistani writer, journalist, and historian Tariq Ali spoke at Hampshire College on November 17 for the the Twelfth Annual Eqbal Ahmad Lecture. The annual Eqbal Ahmad Lecture honors the teaching, scholarship, and activism of the late Eqbal Ahmad, who was a longtime Hampshire College professor. It was a pleasure working this presentation - my first one.
Tariq Ali is author of more than 20 books, including history, politics, and fiction. His most recent books are Protocols of the Elders of Sodom (2009) and The Duel: Pakistan on the Flight Path of American Power (2008). He is a regular contributor to The Guardian, New Left Review, and the London Review of Books.
Noam Chomsky, always controversial, is internationally recognized for his writing, lecturing, and teaching on linguistics, philosophy, intellectual history, international affairs, and U.S. foreign policy. He is joined in this program with Pakistani-born writer and political observer, Tariq Ali.
This event was recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, NM. You may learn more about this and other events on the Lannan website, lannan.org.
