Join the UW-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication together with the Institute for Regional and International Studies (IRIS) for a February conference on ethics in international human rights reporting.

The conference, “Cultures in Conflict: Navigating Cultural Difference in International Human Rights Reporting,” is scheduled for Feb. 9-10, 2018 and hosted at UW-Madison’s state-of-the-art Discovery Building in the H.F. DeLuca Forum. The program features award-winning human rights reporters, organized into two keynote presentations and five thematic panels. Each panel includes three experienced reporters who will discuss various challenges they have faced in the process of narrativizing their encounters with people from disparate ethnic, racial, national, religious, and gendered backgrounds. Some panelists will also talk about their experiences trying to share stories of their own cultures with audiences based in other parts of the world.

A modest breakfast and lunch will be served and, for this reason, conference registration is required.

This conference is made possible by additional support from the African Studies Program, the Center for Russia, East Europe and Central Asia (CREECA), the Middle East Studies Program, the Center for Journalism Ethics and the Anonymous Fund.
