A talk with Muira McCammon
Which books line the shelves of the Guantánamo Bay Detainee Library? Why does library access matter to people imprisoned at Guantánamo Bay, and in other carceral contexts? What rhetorical, social and political work do pop cultural representations of the Detainee Library perform? What happens when we bring values of intellectual freedom, access to information, and censorship into conversation with library practices at Guantánamo? If we could re-imagine, re-invent or transform the Detainee Library, what would we do? This event is hosted by the Harold F. Johnson Library.
