As most of you will know, this Friday 4 November Deakin university is hosting a free public lecture, ‘Changing contours of global order’, by Noam Chomsky. That is why tonight, 2 November from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds campus, the Deakin Philosophical Society will discuss a recent article by Professor Chomsky on the topic of American decline. The article is available at http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/american-decline-causes-and-consequences.

We'll also discuss transport arrangements to Friday's presentation, for those people who are attending. A few of us catching the train up together.

Last week the DPS hosted its AGM. Jason Bishop waged a successful coup, backed by Erin Kennis. Here's the fallout:
- 2012 President: Jason Bishop
- 2012 Secretary: Erin Kennis
- 2102 Treasurer: Dylan Nickelson
I'd like to thank the outgoing, 2011 committee for their service and to congratulate the incoming, 2012 committee.
and sorry for the late notice,
Treasurer, Deakin Philosophical Society.
