This book colloquium will examine Pullitzer Prize winner Glenn Greenwald's No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State. The book recounts the author's meeting with Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency contractor whose evidence of government spying and systemic overreach proved to be one of the most eye-opening and consequential news stories in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. No Place to Hide examines the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in the Guardian reporting of the revelations, and reveals fresh information on the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power, with never-before-seen documents entrusted to Greenwald by Snowden himself. A panel of experts (TBC) will debate the issues raised in the book before opening the discussion to the floor.
