Picturing Atrocity: Photography in Crisis

"In an unprecedented international collaboration between museums and universities, this conference brings together world renowned photojournalists, award winning writers and leading curators and schoolars of photography from across the globe to explore the increasingly urgent questions provoked by photographs of atrocity in contemporary visual culture.  Among other questions, participants will consider what the response and responsibility – of the photographer, of the news and of ourselves-should be to the astonishing ubiquity of these images.  An intense day of conversations, panels and keynote speeches will be accompanied by exhibition on atrocity photographs in the media prepared by the students at the CUNY graduate center." 

Various speakers/panels such as Susan Meiselas, Philip Gourevitch, Elisabeth Biondi (New Yorker) and more.

I’d love to go, but unfortunately can’t make it… i’m waiting to hear from the organizers on how/whether it’ll be recorded/broadcast… if any LS members attend, it would be great to hear some feedback.
