Professor Thomas will explain the relevance of the movie to today’s debate and offer historical perspectives on the controversy surrounding surveillance, eavesdropping and other counterintelligence measures.
At the film’s conclusion, Professor Thomas will entertain your questions and comments.
Food, beverages and good conversation will be on-hand for students, alumni, friends and family. If you can attend, please indicate by responding at this form. Bring your appetite and curiosity.
