Hey, folks.

I wanted to post this on here, as I think it will be of interest to many people. I've helped to organize it and will be attending (although I will not be wearing my "JuneOf48" badge.) The documentary is supposed to be brilliant. Free and open to the public!


War, the U.S. Army "Human Terrain Program," and the
Intellectual's Roles and Responsibilities in Time of War



The objective of this interdisciplinary event is to invite scholars, students, activists, soldiers and community members to engage in a focused discussion about the roles and responsibilities of intellectuals in society, especially in time of war. The film and panel discussions explore several related questions. What should be taught in institutions of higher learning when the country is at war? What are the ethics of using institutions of higher learning to support the political and military objectives of the government? Where does dissent and intellectual freedom fit in an era where the American academy is increasingly collaborating with government agencies pursuant to purely political objectives?

7:15-8:30 Film Screening: Human Terrain/War Becomes Academic, by James Der Derian, David Udris & Michael Udris

8:30-8:45 Commentary by Filmmaker James Der Derian
