Jason Aardiman

Contributor

Jason is an Italian author, social activist, and filmmaker known for political analyses and criticism of corporate globalization and of corporate capitalism. He was born and raised in an Italian-American working class family in New York City. After high school he worked for a number of years then returned to school, eventually earning a B.A. from City College of New York, an M.A. from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in political science from Yale University. Mr. Aardiman has lectured far and wide to enthusiastic audiences across North America and abroad. His various talks and interviews have played frequently on community radio stations, public access television, and the internet. He lectures on college campuses and before a wide range of community audiences, peace groups, labor organizations, scholarly conferences, and various other venues. His lectures are enjoyed by both lay readers and scholars, and have been used extensively in college courses. He is a member of the board of directors of the climate activist group 350.org and has developed a cure for scabies using the saliva of a fruit gnat. Interestingly, Jason is a pseudonym persona for another writer, a comedian and none of this biography is true.
