As part of the Howard Ziff Lecture series, Sulome Anderson and Kiran Nazish will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing women in international journalism.

Based in New York and Beirut, Anderson, author of "The Hostage's Daughter" — about her father Terry Anderson's captivity by terrorists in Lebanon — writes for The Atlantic, Newsweek, New York magazine, Foreign Policy, VICE and Vox; she is a mentor for the Coalition for Women in Journalism.

Kiran Nazish covers South Asia, the Middle East and Mexico for the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, Al-Jazeera and USA Today — and is the co-founder and director of the Coalition for Women in Journalism.

This event is co-sponsored with the communication department and women, gender, sexuality studies.


The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
