U.S. whistleblower Snowden to deliver keynote address at Dal

Edward Snowden will deliver a keynote address at Dalhousie University's inaugural Alumni Days Open Dialogue Series on May 30th.

He will appear via livestream from Moscow, Russia to speak about security, privacy and surveillance.

Dr. Frank Harvey, Dean of Dalhousie's Faculty of Arts and Science, will moderate the event where the former American intelligence officer and whistleblower will also take questions from students.

Snowden made international headlines in 2013 after leaking thousands of NSA documents to journalists.

The U.S. declared him a traitor, and Snowden remains wanted on charges related to the leaks.

The Open Dialogue Series will also feature two panel discussions with faculty, researchers, and alumni delivering TED-style talks about healthcare and immigration.
