Arun Gupta has been an editor of The Indypendent (New York) since 2000 and
was an editor of The Guardian (New York) from 1989-1992. He was active in
the anti-apartheid divestment and Central America solidarity movements in
the 1980s and studied philosophy, history and mathematics at the
University of Maryland. He is currently writing a book on the decline of
U.S. hegemony.

Ric Pfeffer, in whose honor this lecture series was established, worked as
a lawyer with OSHA at the Department of Labor, where he made notable
contributions to worker safety. At the time of his retirement due to
illness, he was developing a standard that would have established a single
universal process for managing and monitoring worker health and safety in
all of the nation's workplaces—a project long supported by the labor
movement.
