Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges visits U of R and School of Journalism
Chris Hedges talks shop with students during a visit to the School of Journalism before his lecture Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012.
Chris Hedges is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Harvard Divinity scholar, former war correspondent and best selling author covering terrorism, the Iraq war and American politics and society. Wildly popular in some circles, banished from others, Chris Hedges is as relentless in his defence of the indigenous and the sacred as he is in his stance against glitz, banality, indifference, careerism and corporate power. His latest book (Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, 2012; co-author, J. Sacco) delves into four U.S. "sacrifice zones" ravished by economic exploitation, and examines the Occupy Movement.
