While most Columbians know the Heyman Center as the ugly concrete slab abutting East Campus, it may soon be known for something else: really sexy speaking engagements. The Heyman schedule includes controversial Holocaust historian Peter Novick, “Israel Lobby” author John Mearshimer (both on 10/30), Counterpunch editor Alexander Cockburn (10/9 and 10/10), and Freakonomist Sudhir Vankatesh (9/13), as well as Adrienne Rich (10/1 and 10/2) and Joseph Stiglitz (10/8). Bwog is currently drooling all over its keyboard, and predicts that the Foner-Cockburn conversation (10/10) will be one of the more interesting and contentious lectures of the year.
