Join MuckRock this Thursday as we discuss “Scientists Under Surveillance: The FBI Files” at the MIT Press bookstore
In the Boston area? Join MuckRock’s JPat Brown, Beryl Lipton, and Michael Morisy this Thursday, April 18, as they discuss their latest book “Scientists Under Surveillance: The FBI Files” at the MIT Press bookstore as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, supported by a multimillion dollar donation from a hedge fund CEO and a history of expertise in artificial intelligence, wants to become a world leader in examining AI’s impact and lead its integration in all aspects of professional and social life.
Next Monday, we’ll be co-hosting a free public records workshop with Emerson College and the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism at the Democracy Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Join us for the free event, whether you’re interested in learning government transparency basics or hoping to find new tactics for freeing documents.
This Friday, November 9th, join the MuckRock staff for an evening of coffee, tea, and ice cream as they swap stories from their book from MIT Press, Writers Under Surveillance: The FBI Files.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation files on James Baldwin, Ernest Hemingway, and Susan Sontag, and a dozen famous writers have a lot of stories to tell, and over the past eight years the MuckRock team has been digging through them. Today, we’re excited to tell those stories in a new format: a 400-page volume that brings the most funny, frightening, poignant, and provocative tales about the intersection of surveillance and freedom to life, as told through those primary source documents.
