Approaching Guantanamo Bay as a key discursive site in a global network of U.S. imperial power, this presentation uses the edited volume Guantdnamo and American Empire: The Humanities Respond (Walicek and Adams, 2018) to discuss the infractions on freedom that have taken place within and around the bay since it was seized by U.S. troops in 1898 during the Spanish-American War.
