Event description:

Sketching Guantanamo

On Wednesday, November 13th at 6:00 PM, the NYU School of Law presents a special panel: (Un)covering Guantanamo: Reporting On Some of the World’s Most Controversial Trials

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the ACLU are delighted to bring together a panel of speakers with unparalleled experience depicting and reporting on the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the military commission trials taking place there.

Included on this panel are Janet Hamlin, artist behind Sketching Guantanamo: Court Sketches of the Military Tribunals, 2006-2013, and Carol Rosenberg, who wrote the foreword for the book.

This distinguished group of journalists will address the challenges and opportunities of covering the most important terrorism trials of our time at an off-shore military base, discuss long-standing allegations of censorship and excessive secrecy, and consider the extent to which the United States government has succeeded (or not) in managing the public image of Guantanamo and the military commissions. They will also discuss the fates and stories of the detainees they have covered.

Join them at Furman Hall [ 245 Sullivan Street ] on the 9th Floor in the Lester Pollack Room. A valid ID and RSVP is required for admission to this event. Please RSVP to Audrey Watne at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by November 6th. This event will be followed by a brief reception.
