Terry has a discussion about the politics of identity, the strengths and limitations of social and political movements that define themselves by ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. She talks with Ellen Willis, professor of journalism at NYU; Edward Said, professor of literature at Columbia; and Gayle Pemberton, associate director of African American studies at Princeton.
Arab scholar Edward Said ("sigh-eed") discusses the recent Middle East peace conference, and the changing leadership of the Palestinian movement. Said is a member of the Palestine National Council (the Palestinian government in exile) and a professor of English at Columbia University.
The Professor of English at Columbia University was born in Palestine and raised in Egypt. He discusses the West's often simplistic misconceptions about Islam and Arab world, and how the war looks from the Arab point of view.
