The Truths We Tell: Reporting from Foreign Fields
A Tribute to Anthony Shadid
In February 2012, Anthony Shadid, a UW journalism alumnus and foreign reporter for The New York Times, died from health complications while crossing the Syrian border. In his honor and memory, the CJE will devote the final session of its conference to Mr. Shadid as a person and a journalist. The session will be a tribute to the life and work of Mr. Shadid and the values that informed his journalism. Part of the session will be a discussion on foreign reporting today – the new challenges that foreign reporters face as they seek to inform a global public.
Speakers will include
Katy Culver, UW-Madison friend and colleague
Kayla Johnson, editor-in-chief, The Daily Cardinal
Mark Pitsch, assistant city editor, Wisconsin State Journal
Stephen Ward, UW-Madison friend and colleague
Presentation of the inaugural Anthony Shadid Award for Journalism Ethics
In honor of Anthony, a friend of the Center and treasured member of the CJE Advisory Board, our journalism ethics award has been renamed to recognize his commitment to ethical journalism and to the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Dan Flannery, winner of last year’s ethics award, will present this inaugural award to longtime Wisconsin writer and editor Steve Lovejoy, of the Journal-Times in Racine, Wis.
