Inside Afghanistan: Mellissa Fung on Reporting from One of the World’s Most Fragile States

Mon., Nov. 17, 2014 12:00 p.m.

Location: School of Journalism, AH 105.2.2 (Ad-Hum Building)

On the airwaves and in print, former CBC journalist Mellissa Fung has brought Afghanistan’s stories home to Canadians – even after being abducted while on assignment at a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul.

Drawing on her experiences reporting from the region over the last seven years, Mellissa will share what she has learned about Afghanistan, about its people, and about taking on a foreign assignment in one of the world’s most fragile countries. She will also reflect on what Afghans have gained since 2001… and why we must remain committed to the country at this crucial moment for Afghanistan’s future.

This event is co-presented by Aga Khan Foundation Canada and our partner journalism schools across the country. Mellissa’s presentation will include an audience Q&A.

Please join us as we travel across Canada to bring this exciting talk and workshop to your university. All events are free and refreshments will be served. Please PRE-REGISTER at http://www.akfc.ca/en/events/item/114-inside-afghanistan/114-inside-afghanistan (scroll down and click on Regina)
