As part of the annual Marie Colvin Lecture Series, Lindsey Hilsum, international editor of Channel 4 News in London and award-winning correspondent and author, will offer a reporter’s account of modern day conflict and America’s future role, as well as her experiences reporting from the frontlines of Rwanda to Syria, and Baghdad to Benghazi. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, December 6, at 7:30 pm in the Student Activities Center, Sidney Gelber Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

This lecture series — presented by The Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting at Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism — honors Marie Colvin, a Long Island native and acclaimed war correspondent, who was tragically killed in Syria on February, 22, 2012, while covering the conflict for The Sunday Times of London.
Hilsum was a colleague and close friend of Marie Colvin. She is currently working on a biography of her.
