University of Arizona continues to add to it’s award-winning faculty.

The school announced Thursday that renowned linguist and activist Noam Chomsky has accepted a role as a laureate professor in the Department of Linguistics.

Chomsky has made regular appearances as a speaker and teacher at the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences over the past five years. He will also assume the title of Agnese Nelms Haury Chair in the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice.

Chomsky will be at the school this fall. He will teach, present public lectures and meet with students as part of his part-time faculty position. He will be a valuable resource for students with his wealth of knowledge and experience. He is considered the founder of modern linguistics, having written more than 100 books, including “Syntactic Structures,” “Language and Mind,” “Aspects of the Theory of Syntax” and “The Minimalist Program.”
Chomsky is also the recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including the Ben Franklin Medal in Computer and Cognitive Science,  the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences, and the Helmholtz Medal.
