Meet Our Newest Speakers

E.J. Dionne
E.J. DionneSyndicated Columnist for The Washington Post
A nationally known and respected commentator on politics, Dionne appears weekly on National Public Radio in a featured counterpoint to David Brooks for their review of politics, and regularly on MSNBC. He is a regular contributor to NBC’s Meet the Press. He has also appeared on News Hour with Jim Lehrer and other PBS programs.

About the Program:
Dionne’s presentation offers an insiders look at the Presidency, Congress and the 2016 Presidential election.

With over 25 years of reporting on Washington politics, his analysis and predictions are among the most on-target of anyone covering Washington.

He will give insight into the frontrunners and how they need to respond to the most important issues of today. Issues such as the economy, budget deficit, health care, immigration, the future of Social Security and Medicare, U.S. foreign policy, the on going war in Afghanistan, the unrest in the Middle East and other critical issues facing the country here at home and around the world, and what we can expect from Washington over the next few years.

David J. Peterson
David J. PetersonLanguage Creator for HBO's Game of Thrones
Master language creator David J. Peterson offers a captivating overview of language creation, covering its history from Tolkien’s creations and Klingon to today’s thriving global community of conlangers. He presents the essential tools necessary for inventing and evolving new languages, using examples from a variety of languages including his creations, punctuated with references to everything from Star Wars to Michael Jackson.

Along the way, behind-the-scenes stories lift the curtain on how he built languages like Dothraki and Valyrian for HBO’s Game of Thrones and Shivaisith for Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. His presentation is an inside look at a fascinating culture and an engaging entry into a flourishing art form-and it might be the most fun you’ll ever have with linguistics.

Kathleen Neal Cleaver

Kathleen Neal Cleaver has spent her life participating in the human rights struggle. She started alongside her parents in the 1950’s civil rights protests in Alabama. By 1966, Kathleen Neal dropped out of Barnard College in New York to join the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) where she served in its Campus Program based in Atlanta. She then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and from 1067 to 1971, she was the first Communications Secretary of the Black Panther Party. After sharing years of exile, in Algeria and France with former husband Eldridge Cleaver, she returned with her family to the United States in late 1975.

In 1984, Cleaver graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in History from Yale College and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. After receiving a J.D. from Yale Law school in 1989, Cleaver became an associate at the law firm Cravath, Swaine and Moore, and later clerked for the late Judge A. Leon Higginbotham of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia.
