Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Guantánamo Bay Detention Camps

May 26-29, 2022

Graz, Austria

January 2022 will mark the twentieth anniversary of the establishment of the Guantánamo Bay detention camps, which were used as a U.S. military prison just months after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in 2001. Such anniversaries offer opportunities to pause, look back, and imagine the future anew, but what insights will this one foster?

To investigate and critically discuss this matter within an academic setting, the Center for Inter-American Studies (C.IAS) of the University of Graz will hold a conference together with the Department of English at the University of Puerto Rico’s Río Piedras Campus. Due to the current developements of the COVID 19 situation in Austria, the conference will now take place from May 26 to May 29, 2022 in Graz, Austria. 

The conference organizers are hopeful that travel to Graz will be possible in January 2022, but they realize that the situation is complex and somewhat unpredictable. With this in mind, the organizing committee is making plans that will allow some speakers to present remotely and others to present on site. These plans for a hybrid conference will be adjusted in accordance with changes travel advisories and other realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers hope to finalize these plans in September of 2021, if not sooner. 

The conference registration fee is € 180 (Early Bird). The early bird registration fee will be offered until November 15, 2021. Graduate students are elegible to pay a reduced fee of € 70. A day pass for € 80 is also available. All fees include conference materials as well as lunches, dinners, and coffee breaks. Payments can be made under this link. Individuals who find themselves in a difficult economic situation can apply for a reduction of the conference fee using this form (please refer to the information regarding the submission found in the application form).
