51st Carlos Kelly McClatchy Symposium

Journalists in war zone

Under Threat: The Future of Foreign Correspondence

The panel features NPR Foreign Editor William Dobson, BuzzFeed International News Editor Miriam Elder, and New York Times Foreign Editor Michael Slackman.

The event, organized and moderated by the Communication Department’s Janine Zacharia, explored questions including: How do we ensure Americans consume important stories from abroad in an age when people are increasingly siloed in their own social media feeds, media organizations aren’t committing the resources they once did, and when certain conflict zones have become too dangerous to work in? In addition, what storytelling tools and platforms do we need to use to ensure that Americans pay attention to international news particularly when the world order is undergoing such seismic shifts?
