Pulitzer Center grantee Glenna Gordon visits Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism to share her work and collaborate with journalism students. Her multi-day visit from Wednesday, February 28, 2018 to Friday, March 2, 2018 brings Gordon to the center of Medill's downtown newsroom where she'll meet with aspiring photojournalists, filmmakers, and faculty to discuss the importance of global reporting in today's world.

Gordon is a documentary photographer and has worked for The New York Tiimes Magazine, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and other news outlets. She has produced two projects with the support of the Pulitzer Center: Justice Renewed: Liberia After War, in partnership with journalist Sarah Topol, following Liberia's efforts to provide justice for victims of sexual violence, and most recently, The Stolen Generation, in partnership with journalist Jina Moore, investigating what life is like for children living in fear of Boko Haram, the terrorist group responsible for kidnapping thousands of children across northeastern Nigeria. 

Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium coordinator Kayla Sharpe accompanies Gordon on the Northwestern visit and facilitates an information session about the Pulitzer Center's student reporting fellowship.
