Join the Tow Center for an evening lecture with Glenn Greenwald, who will discuss the state of journalism today and his recent reporting on surveillance and national security issues.

In April 2014, Greenwald and his colleagues at The Guardian received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.  Don’t miss Greenwald speak in-person as he fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity eleven-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting, and revealing fresh information on the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.  Sponsored by: Haymarket Books, Center for Economic Research and Social Change, Glaser Progress Foundation, Tow Center for Digital Journalism – Columbia Journalism School.

This event is part of Journalism After Snowden, a yearlong series of events, research projects and writing from the Tow Center for Digital Journalism in collaboration with the Columbia Journalism Review.
