Edward Said Memorial Lecture – A History

Edward Wadie Said was a Palestinian-American literary theorist and one of the most articulate and visible advocates of the Palestinian cause. He taught English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Before his death in 2003, Professor Said was seen as one of the leading literary critics of the 20th century, and described by many as an ‘Intellectual Superstar’ in the United States.

[Chomsky starts at 14:22 minutes in.]
