Three Pulitzer Center grantee journalists and Senior Editor Tom Hundley visit Northwestern University in Qatar November 3-November 7, for a focus on their reporting from the Muslim world. The visit by Hundley and journalists Alia Malek, Habiba Nosheen, and Ayman Oghanna includes classroom conversations, a community meeting and a screening of "Outlawed in Pakistan," a documentary by Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann.

Each of these journalists will share their reports on human rights issues, revolutions and international dilemmas. Malek's reports share the stories of Syrian Armenians fleeing their country's violence and returning to a homeland they have never known. Nosheen tells the story of a young Pakistani girl who accuses four men of rape and with the help of her family decides to take her case to the Pakistani courts which are notorious for failing women. Oghanna puts into perspective the challenge that Libya faces in attempting to rebuild its toppled government and the revolution's impact on African migrants.
