Location: Harvard Law School Campus (Griswold Hall, Room 110)


Join us for a discussion and media presentation of the role oil plays in global conflict.

Peter Maass, New York Times Magazine writer and author of Crude World: The Violent Twilight of Oil, will discuss the power of oil to fan the flames of existing problems and harm countries that possess large quantities of it. His work has taken him to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Nigeria, Venezuela, and Kuwait.

Renowned photographer Ed Kashi will share his photographs and multimedia work on the Niger Delta, focusing on issues of oil, development, environmental and economic destruction, sustainability, and our own unavoidable connections to these dynamics.
