Cultures in Conflict: Navigating Cultural Difference in International Human Rights Reporting

February 9, 2018 - February 10, 2018

Cultures in Conflict

Scheduled over two days and hosted at UW-Madison’s state-of-the-art Discovery Building, the conference features award-winning, professional 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.

Conference keynote speakers include Lulu Garcia-Navarro, host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, and Sheila Coronel, Dean of Academic Affairs at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and co-founder of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism.

Garcia-Navarro is scheduled to speak Friday morning, Feb. 9, followed by Coronel’s address on Saturday, Feb. 10.
