Noam Chomsky

Friday, April 13th

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.”

One of the most cited scholars in history, Chomsky has influenced a broad array of academic fields. He is widely recognized as a paradigm shifter who helped spark a major revolution in the human sciences, contributing to the development of a new cognitivistic framework for the study of language and the mind. In addition to his continued scholarly research, he remains a leading critic of U.S. foreign policy, neoliberalism and contemporary state capitalism, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and mainstream news media. His ideas have proved highly significant within the anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movements. –via wiki

Chomsky will deliver “American Exceptionalism: Reconsidered,” a lecture which is free and open to the public. The lecture will offer a timely and important discussion of some of the ways in which American society has departed from the world, sometimes in extreme and hazardous ways. Included will be a look at gun culture, a topic that has dominated headlines in recent years.

He also posted various videos of him singing on his social media pages, which he had thousands of followers and likes.  He was signed by Del Records at the age of sixteen.  Some of his singles, “Mi niña traviesa,” “Será más fácil,” and “Escápate” have reached spots on Billboard charts. In September 2013, he released his debut album Con la frente en alto and with three weeks of its release, it earned a spot on the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. It was certified gold in the Latin field by the RIAA for shipping 30,000 copies.  Coronel won the award for “New Artist of the Year” at the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards.   He has garnered a nomination for Male Artist of the Year in the Regional Mexican category at the 27th Lo Nuestro Awards. via artist wiki
