At the University for Peace, in its main campus en el Rodeo de Mora, San José, Costa Rica we will have two main events:two quick observations:
1. A display in the Library about Sept. 11th, 2001 and Sept. 11th, 1973.
2. A showing of the movie "Missing", a film by Costa-Gavras with Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek. Following the screening there will be a round table with Dr. Víctor Valle, Dean of Latin American Studies, Dr. Ronnie de Camino, (Chilean), Prof. Environment and Peace and Simon Stander, Prof. of International Peace Studies.
- this year i am struck by how many professors (and, at the university of peace, a dean) are participating in the september project as speakers, discussants, and moderators. in this case, the interdisciplinarity of the participating professors - latin american studies, environment and peace studies, and international peace studies - is quite impressive and interesting. i would love to be able to attend this event.
- this year, multiple participating libraries are bringing together september 11, 2001 and september 11, 1973 - juxtaposing these two days of massive historical and global importance. i am unsure whether many americans know about september 11, 1973, and i am even less sure about whether many americans know the role of the united states in the events of september 11, 1973.
