REGINA, Sept. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Bad news travels fast. And so do the
journalists who report it.
International correspondents are our eyes and ears around the globe. But
shrinking media budgets, accelerated news cycles and shuttered foreign
bureaux are forcing reporters to cover more territory in less time.
These 'parachute journalists' rarely have a chance to dig deep - as
soon as the story is filed, their bags are packed for the next hotspot.
Award-winning photojournalist and reporter Marc Ellison is slowing down the news cycle. Whether he's writing for major
newspapers or designing multimedia graphic novels, Marc's reporting
shatters stereotypes of the developing world - sharing in-depth stories
that capture the nuances of daily life.
Aga Khan Foundation Canada and the University of Regina's School of Journalism are pleased to welcome Marc to Regina for a special lecture and Q&A on Tuesday, September 24, as part of a series visiting six Canadian cities.
Drawing on his experiences with former child soldiers in Uganda, Marc
will reflect on what it takes to navigate a foreign landscape - and how
to bring a meaningful story home to Canadians.
Date: Tuesday, September 24
Time: 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm CST
Location: University of Regina, Administration Humanities Building, room 105.2.2
