January 1990, Noam Chomsky gave the keynote address at the Self-Determination and Power Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.
The Self-Determination and Power Conference was organized by an alliance of the Free University of Glasgow, the Edinburgh Review, James Kelman (who introduced Chomsky in this video), Peter Kravitz, and Scottish Child magazine, edited by Derek Rodger.
This keynote is featured in James Kelman and Noam Chomsky’s latest book, Between Thought and Expression Lies a Lifetime: Why Ideas Matter.
We hope you enjoy this video and will join us on Dec. 6th for a live online conversation with James Kelman and Noam Chomsky to speak about their new book and this conference. You can register for that event here.
A Radical Guide would like to thank Malcolm Dickson and Adam Lockhart for providing footage from the Self Determination video collection.
