Plunder and Surveillance: Aftermath of the Iraq War @ the Asian American Writers’ Workshop
Join the Asian American Writers’ Workshop for a special event about how has Iraq changed post American invasion and how the war on terror has been “brought home” through an expanded security state. We are featuring journalist Erin Banco, who wrote the recently released Pipe Dreams, Nisha Kapoor, the author of Deport, Deprive, Extradite, a radical analysis of the contemporary security state, Iraqi artist Wafaa Bilal, who will read from his book, Shooting an Iraqi, and Marina Budhos, the author of Watched, an award-winning YA novel about a Bangladeshi teenager in Jackson Heights whose community is surveilled — and who accepts a deal to join the surveilling. Moderated by AAWW Programs Coordinator Sophia Hussain and co-presented by Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here.
