An Afternoon with Glenn Greenwald

20 Aug

Renowned journalist Glenn Greenwald discusses his favourite subjects: power and accountability, surveillance and privacy, Trump and fake news, threats to democracy, courage, and the role of journalism in giving a voice to perspectives and events that are ignored and silenced by large media outlets.

 

Well known as the journalist who worked with Edward Snowden in 2013 to reveal the secret surveillance programs undertaken by the United States and Britain, Glenn Greenwald will be in discussion with former WA Greens Senator Scott Ludlam, and University of Sydney academics Benedetta Brevini and John Keane.

 

University of Sydney current students are eligible for one free ticket.
