NYU Cultures of War and the Postwar invites you to join us on the evening of Tuesday 26th March at 7pm in the Event Space 244 Greene St, as we welcome Peter Molin, creator of the Time Now blog. The evening's discussion will be centered around the challenges of chronicling the literature, film and art of the US "forever wars" in Iraq and Afghanistan. Drinks and refreshments will be provided.

Since 2012 his acclaimed blog Time Now: The Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in Art, Film, and Literature has explored literary, cinematic and artistic works focused on America’s 21st-century wars. Formerly on the faculty of the Department of English and Philosophy at the United States Military Academy at West Point, he is currently assistant director of the Rutgers-New Brunswick English Department Writing Program.
