Today we feature a classic edition of This Week In Palestine, the voice of the late Edward Said. Although Edward Said died in 2003, as a renowned Arab intellectual, we feature his lectures from time to time to keep his voice active. He is relevant to this day. Edward was a professor of literature at Columbia University, a public intellectual, and a founder of the academic field of postcolonial studies, a Palestinian American born in Mandatory Palestine, but largely educated in the United States. An author and musician, he is best known for his book Orientalism. Here he speaks on Culture and Imperialism at York University, in Toronto in 1993.

A renowned Arab intellectual, Edward Said founded the academic field of postcolonial studies at Columbia University. This classic speech provides history and analysis giving a wider view of today's lethal exploits by the U.S. and Israel.
