On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, Trinity Hall alumna and Pulitzer Center grantee Sophie Neiman (2021, African Studies) will join Trinity Hall Development Director Rachelle Stretch for a conversation. Neiman will speak about how to manage the challenges journalists face covering conflict and crisis and her ongoing work writing about politics and human rights in Uganda. The event will take place in the Graham Storey Room at 6:00pm GMT and will last approximately 1 hour, with an opportunity for Q&A at the end. There is no charge to attend, however, booking is required. Register here.
For her Pulitzer Center backed project, Charting Conflict and Corruption–Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda, Neiman uncovered that many people who lost their homes to the volcano had been left in bleak Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps, unable to meet their basic needs despite promises of government and NGO support.
While at Trinity Hall, Neiman will also visit classes in the Africana Studies Department. She plans to discuss her year's worth of research into human rights abuses stemming from oil development in Uganda.
