“United States” to Imperial America: Our Hidden Empire

The global expanse of US military bases is well-known, but its actual territorial empire is largely hidden. The true map of America is not taught in our schools.

Abby Martin interviews history Professor Daniel Immerwahr about his new book, ‘How To Hide An Empire,’ where he documents the story of our “Greater United States.”

Parking: There is limited metered parking on campus on Séraphin-Marion (the continuation of Wilbrod west of Cumberland) and in the adjacent lot east of Tabaret Hall, and also on Louis Pasteur, between MacDonald Hall and Gendron Hall. The meters are enforced 24/7. There is also a pay-and-display lot beside Simard Hall. The best bet is on nearby streets in Sandy Hill, e.g., Henderson, where there are signs for 2 or 3 hour parking up to 7:00 p.m., unrestricted after 7:00.

 

 

Fall 2019 Cinema Academica

Greetings!

Thank you to all our long-term supporters over the years.

Cinema Academica organizers were unsure last Spring if Cinema Academica would be continuing this Fall 2019 due to provincial and University of Ottawa changes that were going on.

It looks like we will be a go for this fall.

 

Stay tuned (the email list might help a bit in the short term) for updates.

Citizen Jane

It is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably, no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects.
