14th Annual State of the World Address

Program #BARD007. Recorded in Boulder, CO on September 12, 2016.

Each September, as part of the So, You’re a Poet reading series, AR Director David Barsamian delivers a State of the World Address at one of his favorite haunts in Boulder – The Laughing Goat Coffee House. In this free ranging 55-minute talk, David time travels around the world and brings it all back home to the planetary cataclysm we face.

Speaker(s):

David Barsamian

One of America's most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, David Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio—now in its 33rd year—and his books with Noam Chomsky, Eqbal Ahmad, Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy and Edward Said. His latest book with Noam Chomsky is Global Discontents: Conversations on the Rising Threats to Democracy. A new edition of his book with Edward Said, Culture and Resistance (2019), with a new introduction is now available. David lectures on world affairs, imperialism, capitalism, propaganda, the media, the economic crisis and global rebellions.

In 2017 the South Asian Network for Secularism and Democracy presented him with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He has collaborated with the world-renowned Kronos Quartet in events in New York, London, Vienna, Boulder and elsewhere. David Barsamian is the winner of the Media Education Award, the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, and the Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation. The Institute for Alternative Journalism named him one of its Top Ten Media Heroes.
