Public Events at Harvard and Duke


Tomorrow, Thursday, March 24, at 5:00 p.m., I will have a public conversation with Daniel Ellsberg entitled “Wikileaks and the Pentagon Papers: Government Secrets and the Public’s Right to Know” at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We will be exploring the similarities and differences between the Pentagon Papers and WikiLeaks controversies, including the remarkable parallels between the U.S. government’s public campaigns of vilification against Daniel Ellsberg then and Bradley Manning now. The discussion will be followed by a showing of Oscar-nominated documentary “The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.” It is open to the public. More details here.

Friday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m., I will be participating in a panel discussion on “The Nature of U.S.-Sponsored Torture” at a conference at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina; the opening session convenes the the First Presbyterian Church in Durham. My talk will focus on the Arab Revolution of 2011, the role that U.S. torture practices played in shaping this revolution, and its ramifications for America’s posture in the Arab world. The conference, “Toward a Moral Consensus Against Torture,” is co-sponsored by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, and is open to the public. More information about the events is here.
