Forum for Scholars and Publics (Old Chem 011)
12:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Lunch will be available beginning at 11:30.
Despite differences in time period and situation, there are many journalists today in war-torn, conflict, and critical territories who suffer physically and psychologically. Societies in those territories count on the work of Journalists to exercise their right of free speech. This event is the second of two parts. The first is a presentation of short documentaries (film & radio), held at the John Hope Franklin Center on Monday, February 22 at 6 pm. This session is a discussion-based forum with the journalists. Together, the two events will provide critical insights into the perils and challenges journalists face while reporting from today’s conflict-torn and territories in crisis in the Americas and Beyond.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Duke University and co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics, with generous support from the Office of Global Affairs and the Hanscom Endowment, all at Duke University.
For more information, contact Dr. Miguel Rojas Sotelo.
