Join us for a retrospective on Edward Said!

Hello Radio Bandungers! Join us tomorrow evening at 5pm for a discussion with Dr. Asha Varadharajan (http://post.queensu.ca/~varadhar/index.html) on the life and works of Edward Said. We'll be speaking with Dr. Varadharajan about a wide range of topics, including: Said's conceptualization of what it meant to be an intellectual; Orientalism: its consequences and critiques; and life after Orientalism: Said as Post-colonial critic and theorist. We anticipate an interesting and fun hour!

We've heard from a number of friends and listeners that they would find it useful to have our program archived on the blog. This is a great idea! We're working hard to straighten out a couple of technical issues (mainly our luddite tendencies) and will try to have podcasts and streaming audio available in the next couple of weeks. For the time being, try heading to www.cfrc.ca and accessing the show through their archival database (Radio Bandung can be found under Thursday at 17:00).
