Views From Conflict Zones: A conversation about the human costs of war
with Dahr Jamail and Susan Galleymore.
In the SUB Ballroom (UI campus).
Dahr Jamail has spent a total of nine months in occupied Iraq as an unembedded independent reporter, and has become renowned for documenting the human costs of that war. His first book, Beyond The Green Zone, gives us a view of military resistance to the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Dahr’s most recent book, The Will to Resist, sheds light on the contours of dissent within the ranks of the US military.
Susan Galleymore made international headlines when she traveled to Iraq to visit her Army Ranger son stationed in the Sunni Triangle. Subsequently, she launched an international project (www.motherspeak.org), and recently published Long Time Coming: Mothers Speak about War and Terror in order to share stories of mothers and children engaged in or affected by the Global War on Terror.
Susan and Dahr will introduce themselves and briefly describe their current work. Following this introduction, they will discuss their experiences in conflict zones, and impressions of the impacts of war on civilians and combatants alike. The conversation will be moderated by Pastor Dean Stewart and will questions from the audience will be encouraged.
BookPeople of Moscow will sell copies of Dahr’s and Susan’s books in the Sub Lobby.
The event is free and open to the public.
