[SDCPJ] 10/22/12 "THE COVERT RETURN OF THE MILITARY-INTELLIGENCE COMPLEX TO CAMPUS: WHY UNIVERSITIES SHOULD BE VERY AFRAID"

The Hostler Institute on World Affairs Presents:

Dr. David Price, "The Covert Return of the Military-Intelligence Complex to Campus: Why Universities Should Be Very Afraid"

Hardy Tower 140, Monday, October 22: 5:30-7, San Diego State

For directions, see http://www.sdsu.edu/campusinfo/directions.html

David Price is a professor of anthropology and sociology at St. Martin's University in Lacey, Washington. He has researched and published extensively on the interaction between academics and U.S. military and intelligence agencies, like the Pentagon, the CIA, and NSA. His writings cover two main trajectories. One is the surveillance and harassment of academics engaged in status-quo threatening activism. The other is the historical contribution of academics, especially anthropologists, to military and intelligence agencies. The talk at San Diego State addresses the threats posed to academic freedom and integrity by the renewed efforts of military and intelligence agencies, in the post-9/11 era, to influence the teaching and research agendas of academia.

Dr. Price has published extensively in both academic venues and forums of public engagement, like Counterpunch. His books include Threatening Anthropology: McCarthyism and the FBI's Surveillance of Activist Anthropologists (Duke University Press, 2004), Anthropological Intelligence: the Deployment and Neglect of Anthropological Knowledge during the Second World War (Duke University Press, 2008), and Weaponizing Anthropology: Social Science in Service of the Militarized State (Counterpunch Books/AK Press, 2011).
