Professor Henry Giroux (Jeer-oh) holds the Global Television Network Chair of English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University in Ontario Canada and is one of our most articulate activist scholars, thought leaders and prolific writers critiquing American politics, culture and education. He was previously the Waterbury Chair Professor at Penn State University and Director of the Forum in Education and Cultural Studies.  Professor Giroux is a leader in the field of critical and public pedagogy which describes the nature of spectacle in our new media, body politic and corporate education.  He is a prominent advocate of radical democracy, which opposes the powers of neoliberalism, corporatism, and religious fundamentalism that diminishes our sense of civic virtue, free-thought and well being. He has also been named among the top fifty educational thinkers of the modern Period.  Henry has authored many books.  His most recent is "The Terror of the Unforessen"  -- that deconstructs the emergence of a popular, neoliberal fascism in our present age of disposability where personal freedoms and democracy is dispensable.  Professor Giroux's website is HenryAGiroux.com
