Social Science In War / Online Symposium

CTlab member Brian Glyn Williams, PhD, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, recently testified as an expert witness for the defence in the trial of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, "Bin Laden’s Driver", in the first US military tribunal since World War II. He has since been interviewed about the case on National Public Radio, and his testimony has been cited in the Miami Herald and the New York Times/Int’l Herald Tribune.

On 22 September 2008, CTlab will launch an online symposium on the scholarly and substantive implications of the Hamdan trial. Dr. Williams has drafted an original, narrative account of his experience, and is making it available for discussion through the CTlab weblog. It will be released for public consumption, followed by comments and observations from a panel of invited legal scholars and social scientists based in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Details to follow.
