May31The Nation at The New School – Jeremy Scahill on Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield @ Tishman AuditoriumFriday: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Nation at The New School – Jeremy Scahill on Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield
Nation Books and The New School present Nation Books author and Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow Jeremy Scahill in conversation with Spencer Ackerman, a national security reporter and blogger for Wired magazine.
In Scahill’s newest book, Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield (Nation Books, April 2013), he takes us inside America’s new covert wars. The foot soldiers in these battles operate globally and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies. Drawn from the ranks of the Navy SEALs, Delta Force, former Blackwater and other private security contractors, the CIA’s Special Activities Division, and the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), these elite soldiers operate worldwide, with thousands of secret commandos working in more than one hundred countries. Funded through “black budgets,” Special Operations Forces conduct missions in denied areas, engage in targeted killings, snatch and grab individuals, and direct drone, AC-130 and cruise missile strikes. While the Bush administration deployed these ghost militias, President Barack Obama has expanded their operations and given them new scope and legitimacy. Dirty Wars follows the consequences of the declaration that ”the world is a battlefield,” as Scahill uncovers the most important foreign policy story of our time. Through his brave reporting, Scahill exposes the true nature of the dirty wars the United States government struggles to keep hidden.
Jeremy Scahill is the National Security Correspondent for the Nation magazine and the author of the New York Times best-seller Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army (Nation Books, 2007). He has reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, the former Yugoslavia, and elsewhere across the globe. Scahill is a frequent guest on a wide array of programs, appearing regularly on The Rachel Maddow Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, Democracy Now!, and Bill Moyers Journal. Scahill’s work has sparked several Congressional investigations and won some of journalism’s highest honors. He was twice awarded the prestigious George Polk Award, in 1998 for foreign reporting and in 2008 for his book Blackwater. He is also a producer and writer of the film Dirty Wars, selected for the US documentary competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

IDC is the premiere annual international conference for the top minds in academia and industry to share the latest research findings, innovative methodologies and new technologies in the areas of inclusive child-centered design, learning and interaction.
The conference’s mission is to bring together researchers, designers and educators to explore new forms of technology, design and engaged learning among children. IDC incorporates papers, presentations, speakers, workshops, participatory design experiences and discussions on how to create better interactive experiences for children.
Participants often come from a variety of fields, including computer science, communication, child development, engineering, digital media, game design, educational psychology and learning sciences. IDC 2013 will offer a wide-ranging program, supporting and facilitating the exchange of ideas within and between all of these communities, with a special emphasis on supporting DIY/maker culture among children and global inclusion, particularly for at-risk and marginalized populations worldwide.
While IDC 2013 builds on the strong and dedicated community that has developed around this annual conference for the past 12 years, we invite academics and industry professionals, professors and students, pre-K-12 practitioners in formal and informal learning settings, and NYC and non-NYC based scholars alike to join us and to submit proposals.
