Early life[edit]

Hall received his B.A. and M.A. from York University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto.[1]

Career[edit]

Hall is a professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, and a member of the 9/11 Truth movement.[2][3] Prior to his position in Globalization Studies department, he was a professor in the Department of Native Studies.[4]

In 2001, Hall organized an academic conference on indigenous rights, coinciding with the 3rd Summit of the Americas in Quebec City. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police questioned him about his activities, which the Canadian Association of University Teachers called a violation of his academic freedom.[5]

Critics have called him conspiracy theorist.[6]

Hall wrote a book called Earth into Property (McGill/Queens University Press, 2010) describing the disastrous effects of capitalism on indigenous peoples. A review in The Independent said the book "deserves a far wider readership than it's likely to get via a small Canadian publisher."[7]
