The Pulitzer Center education team and The University of Chicago’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies invite students and educators to join us for a webinar with award-winning investigative reporter May Jeong to discuss peace, conflict, and human rights in Afghanistan. The webinar will include a presentation led by Jeong outlining her experiences covering the Médecins Sans Frontières hospital bombing in Kunduz for The Intercept and her reporting project on Afghan peace negotiations for Harper’s Magazine. The session will also include a Q&A with May Jeong, a presentation of digital resources for educators and students exploring stories about Afghanistan, and recommendations on how students can “read beyond the headlines” when examining coverage of Afghanistan and related conflicts in the Middle East.

 

May Jeong is an award-winning magazine writer and investigative reporter. She is best known for her months-long investigation into the MSF hospital bombing in Kunduz, Afghanistan for The Intercept. This won her the 2017 South Asian Journalists Association’s Daniel Pearl Award for Outstanding Report on South Asia, as well as the Prix Bayeux Calvados Award for War Correspondents in the Young Reporter category.

 

This event is co-sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the University of Chicago's Center for Middle Eastern Studies with generous support from a Title VI National Resource Center Grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
