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. Gallatin’s Scott Korb, author of the forthcoming America, Meet Islam (Beacon, 2013), will moderate.
