Tomorrow at 5pm, we have a great opportunity to put Grounded into even more context: a conversation with Dan Fesperman, the author of Unmanned.

In this interview with the Baltimore Post-Examiner, Fesperman gives us a sneak peek into the sorts of things we may hear in more depth tomorrow.

Look here for more information and tickets!


Get a taste — then check out the whole thing in our intimate Mulitz-Gudelsky Lab Theater!

This piece in yesterday’s Washington Post shows that Grounded isn’t going to stop being topical anytime soon.  The Obama administration is allowing sales of armed drones more widely, not just to the UK.  Armed drones will only be sold to allies making a good case for them, but countries from Italy to Turkey are hoping to take advantage of the policy change.

The history of women in the US military isn’t all about being in the air, and ultimately, our Pilot too is on the ground.  Check out the WAC and WAAC (Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps) chapter of the US Army’s site.

On a personal note, you can read about my family’s WAC ties and the awards my grandmother received 68 years after she earned them.
