The Marie Colvin Distinguished Lecture Series: Lindsey Hilsum

Isolationism and Intervention: A reporter’s account of modern day conflict and America’s future role

The Marie Colvin Center for International Reporting at Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism is pleased to present the annual Marie Colvin Lecture, as part of the Marie Colvin Distinguished Lecture Series. This year’s speaker is Lindsey Hilsum, the international editor of Channel 4 News in London and an award-winning correspondent and author. Hilsum will offer a reporter’s account of modern day conflict and America’s future role, as well as her experiences reporting from the frontlines of Rwanda to Syria, and Baghdad to Benghazi.

This annual lecture honors Marie Colvin, a Long Island native and acclaimed war correspondent, who was tragically killed in Syria on February, 22, 2012, while covering the conflict for The Sunday Times of London. Hilsum was a colleague and close friend of Marie Colvin. She is currently working on a biography of Marie Colvin.
