Petteruti Lounge, Stephen Robert '62 Center

Guantánamo, Going Forward: What’s Next for Current and Former Detainees?, a half-day symposium organized by the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage, features presentations by the conceptual documentary artist Debi Cornwall; J. Wells Dixon, a constitutional rights attorney who will address the future of Guantánamo under the Trump Administration; and Mohamedou Ould Slahi, former detainee at Guantánamo and author of Guantánamo Diary. They will address the current situation at Guantánamo and the prospects for those still detained there; the experience and possibilities for former detainees, including apology and reparation by national governments; and how individuals and institutions, in the humanities and across disciplines, can advocate and act for change.
