Rubenstein Library Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room 153
January 22 will mark the sixth anniversary of President Obama's promise to close Guantanamo. On Thursday, January 21, the Human Rights Archive at Duke's Rubenstein Library will be hosting a presentation by Peter Jan Honigsberg on "The Lives and Voices of Guantanamo: The Work of the Witness to Guantanamo Project." The Witness to Guantanamo project has filmed in-depth interviews of 136 people who have lived or worked or have been involved in the Guantanamo Bay detention center. No one else in the world is doing this kind of work. Interviewees include not only detainees, but also prison guards, interrogators, interpreters, chaplains, medical personnel, habeas lawyers, prosecutors, journalists, high-ranking military and government officials, and family members of the detainees. The project has filmed more than 250 hours of video in 20 countries. Peter Jan Honigsberg is professor at the University of San Francisco, School of Law, and the founder and director of the Witness to Guantanamo project. Professor Honigsberg has written books, law review articles and blog pieces on Guantanamo and on post-9/11 issues. He was recently invited to speak to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Professor Honigsberg is the author of "Our Nation Unhinged" (University of California Press, 2009). He is currently working on a book on his research and work with the Witness to Guantanamo project.

Heralding the Way to a New World: Exploring Women in Science and Medicine through the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

All Day
Rubenstein Library Mary Duke Biddle Room
From the first entomologist to capture the stages of metamorphosis of the butterfly (1705) to the first reformer to open a birth control clinic in Great Britain (1921), the women in this exhibit were pioneers in science and medicine. Whether self-trained or classically educated, they not only made groundbreaking contributions to their fields, but also helped open the way for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Despite their accomplishments, most of these women remain overlooked or under-recognized. This exhibition highlights the stories of seven revolutionary women in science and medicine and celebrates the arrival of the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection, from which these materials were selected.
