Guantanamo Bay: Archives and Memory

The Archives and Public History Brown Bag Lunch Series continues next Friday, November 6. This session will feature a discussion of public memory surrounding Guantanamo Bay. We will focus on New York University’s Tamiment Library and Seton Hall University’s Center for Policy and Research new project to document, preserve, and make accessible the legal records and the human stories of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. The Guantanamo documentation project is co-directed by Mark Denbeaux, professor of law at Seton Hall University Law School and director of the Center for Policy and Research; Jonathan Hafetz, adjunct professor of law at Seton Hall; and Michael Nash, director of the Tamiment Library and co-director of the Frederic Ewen Academic Freedom Center at NYU. The International Sites of Conscience has also partnered with the project and Liz Sevcenko will discuss its Guantánamo Public Memory Colloquium and working group, “Remembering Guantanamo, 1898-Tomorrow.”

Please bring a brown bag lunch. Complimentary drinks and desserts will be provided.

In order to assure we have enough chairs and desserts, please RSVP to Keara Duggan kearaduggan@gmail.com by Tuesday, November 4.
