New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study will host “Patriot Acts: Narratives of Post 9/11 Injustice,” a roundtable discussion, on Tuesday, September 13, 7-8:30 p.m. at its Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts (1 Washington Place [at Broadway]). Subways: N, R (8th St.); 6 (Astor Pl.).

Panelists will include: Alia Malek, the editor of Patriot Acts (Voices of Witness/McSweeney’s, 2011), several contributors to the collection, Imam Khalid Latif of NYU’s Islamic Center, and Gallatin student Ebadur Rahman.
