How does the media frame discourse around trials of detainees?

What is the role of the media in framing popular discourse around terrorism, terrorism trials, and civil
liberties? Join an interdisciplinary group of writers, journalists, academics, and activists to consider the
case of Brooklyn College graduate Syed Hashmi, currently on trial for aiding Al Qaeda. Participants
include Petra Bartosiewicz, frequent contributor to The Nation, Harper’s, and other publications and
author of a forthcoming book about the Justice Department’s post-9/11terrorism trials; Lisa Graves,
Executive Director of the Center for Media and Democracy; and Shane Kadidal, senior managing
attorney of the Guantánamo Global Justice Initiative at the Center for Constitutional Rights. Moderated
by Jeanne Theoharis, Professor of Political Science, Brooklyn College.
