Institute Professor Emeritus Noam Chomsky, a prolific author, political activist, and philosopher, is one of MIT’s greatest scientists. He created the field of modern linguistics—the scientific study of language—and his political commentaries have sparked controversy and conversation for more than 50 years.

Join us for a live screening of an MIT Alumni Association Faculty Forum webcast with Professor Noam Chomsky on Tuesday, January 20, noon-12:45 p.m. in Killian Hall. This is a rare opportunity to hear Chomsky’s thoughts on a wide range of topics, as well as the recently established Chomsky Archive at MIT that includes his personal notes, drafts, correspondence, and other rare and unpublished materials. This event is free and open to the public, no registration is required.

Non-alumni can also watch the webcast and share their real-time thoughts and questions on Twitter using the hashtag #mitfaculty. (Check back to Slice of MIT on Monday, January 19, for viewing details for non-alumni.)
