MARCH 26, 2015 – JOURNALISTS FROM THE NEW York Times shared their experiences covering conflicts in other parts of the world yesterday during a panel discussion presented by Georgetown’s journalism program.
The event, “War Reporting: Ukraine, Syria, and Other Fronts,” featured Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists C.J. Chivers and Tyler Hicks. Alex Horton, a lecturer in the journalism program who has blogged about veterans affairs and being on the front lines, moderated the discussion.
Chivers contributes to the foreign and investigative desks of The New York Times and frequently posts for the At War blog, writing on conflict, politics, crime and human rights. Two of his stories were cited for the Pulitzer Prize for public service in 2002, and he was a part of the team that won the Pulitzer for international reporting for coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2009.
Tyler Hicks, a senior photographer for the New York Times, won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography in 2014 for his coverage of the massacre at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya.
Last night's discussion is the inaugural event of the Salim El-Lozi Lecture Series, which honors the memory of Lebanese political journalist Salim El-Lozi, who was kidnapped and killed in 1980 after criticizing the Syrian occupation of Lebanon and then-Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
