John Fisher Burns London Chief at the New York Times and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist

’In the Eye of the Storm: Journalists under Fire’

Wednesday 9 May at 6pm Robinson Auditorium, Grange Road, Cambridge, CB3 9AN

Synposis John Fisher Burns is the longest-serving foreign correspondent in The New York Times’s history, having worked for more than 30 years on assignments in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. He has won two Pulitzer prizes, in 1993 for his coverage of the siege and destruction of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, and again in 1997 for his coverage of the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Drawing on his experience as journalist, John Fisher Burns will look at the ethics of journalism in our time. He will also share some reflections on a lifetime as a war correspondent as well as on the current scandals enveloping the Murdoch tabloids.

The lecture is free and open to all but tickets are required.
