Ramzi Kassem, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Immigrant & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic at the City University of New York will present a talk entitled "'Zero Dark Thirty' and Torture in American Discourse." The Oscar-nominated film Zero Dark Thirty has reignited the controversy about the place of torture in American policy. Professor Ramzi Kassem will explore what the ongoing debate reveals—and what it obscures—about American counterterrorism efforts and the United States’ current legal and moral standing. Presented by the Department of Anthropology, the National Security Clinic, the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, the Department of Sociology, and the South Asia Institute.
