Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post-9/11 Injustice

Sep 13, 2011 | 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Patriot Acts

Gallatin welcomes Alia Malek, the editor of Patriot Acts, contributors to the collection, and members of the NYU community for a panel discussion of the Patriot Acts and the place of Islam in America.

A groundbreaking collection of oral histories, Patriot Acts tells the stories of men and women who have been needlessly swept up in the War on Terror. In their own words, narrators recount personal experiences of the post-9/11 backlash that have deeply altered their lives and communities. The eighth book in the Voice of Witness series, Patriot Acts illuminates these experiences in a compelling collection of eighteen oral histories from men and women who have found themselves subject to a wide range of human and civil rights abuses—from rendition and torture, to workplace discrimination, bullying, FBI surveillance and harassment.
