“The Corporation” -- A Film and Discussion Series at FDU
Madison, NJ (November 2, 2004)— “The Corporation,” a film and discussion series at Fairleigh Dickinson University, examines the influence of corporations on our lives. The series will take place on three Tuesdays in November and is based on the book “The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power” by Joel Bakan.
A Booklist starred review characterizes the book as a work that “takes a powerful stab at the most influential institution of our time, the corporation.” The book has been made into a documentary film with commentary from Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Howard Zinn and others. After each screening, there will be an audience discussion with facilitators from the University’s Center for Human Resource Management Studies.
“The Corporation” series focuses on "A Unique History" on Tuesday, November 9; "The Limits of Profit" and "Debate Over the Future" on Tuesday, November 16; and all three parts will be repeated together on Tuesday, November 30. The screening begins at 5 p.m. in Hartman Lounge, the Mansion, FDU’s College at Florham, 285 Madison Avenue (Route 124), Madison.
The series looks at the far-reaching repercussions of the corporation's increasing preeminence. It delves into a range of subjects including media and society, business ethics, political science and the environment and public health.
The College at Florham Library and the University’s Center for Human Resource Management are sponsors of the series. It is free and open to the public; reservations are encouraged. For further information, call the Library at 973-443-8530.
