Isolationism and Intervention: A reporter’s account of modern day conflict and America’s future role
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.
The Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting aims to nurture and grow the next generation of overseas reporters. The Center raises awareness about the need for robust international coverage through the annual Marie Colvin Lecture, and works to continue Colvin’s legacy by rewarding tenacious overseas reporting with a journalist-in-residence fellowship, which Hilsum is the first to receive.
