Libya Conflict: Remembering Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros;
Photographer and 2010 Dart Center Ochberg fellow Teru Kuwayama reflects on the deaths of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros as they covered the conflict in Libya. In this era of Facebook and Twitter, news of their deaths sped across a social network of professional communicators.
At a panel discussion held on March 31, the four New York Times foreign correspondents who were detained in Libya last month spoke about the conditions of their captivity and their continued commitment to covering dangerous conflicts. Watch a complete video recording of the event on our blog.
Cecilia Ballí on Covering Cruelty; John Pope on the Ethics of Interviewing Patients
2010 Dart Ochberg fellow Cecilia Ballí is the author of "Ghost Town,” a piece about the drug war and violence in Mexico's Ciudad Mier, originally published in Texas Monthly. We've reprinted her exemplary reporting on our site and also had Ballí answer some questions about how her work as a cultural anthropoligist shapes her approach to journalism and emotional storytelling.
John Pope, a staff writer for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, offers suggestions on how mental health professionals and journalists can ethically collaborate in the coverage of people who have experienced trauma.
