Drone pilots who carry out targeted assassinations. Undocumented immigrants who man the “kill floors” of industrial slaughterhouses. Guards who patrol the wards of the United States’ most violent and abusive prisons. Dirty Work offers a paradigm-shifting view of the moral landscape of contemporary America through the stories of people who perform society’s most ethically troubling jobs.
Sponsored by The James H. Ottaway Sr. Visiting Professor of Journalism Program, Eyal Press, the 2016 Ottaway Professor and author of Dirty Work, will host a talk and book signing. Press will be speaking at 5 p.m. and book signing at 6:15 p.m. The talk will be in the Science Hall Auditorium (SH 181) while the signing will be in the Science Hall Lobby.
