Pulitzer Center grantee Duy Linh Tu and his reporting partner, Sebastian Tuinder, will visit the University of Missouri on October 5 to speak with students and screen their documentary. In the evening, they will join two students who contributed to The Price of Plenty, a Pulitzer Center-supported project, for a panel discussion.

The Smith/Patterson Science Journalism Lecture will begin at 6:00pm CDT in the Smith Forum.

“I’m excited to see students get inspired by the in-depth environmental reporting that Duy and Sebastian do so well,” said Sara Shipley Hiles, director of the Smith/Patterson lecture program and an associate professor at the School of Journalism. “This opportunity to hear from working journalists who know how to immerse themselves in a community and find the story that matters is what the School of Journalism’s Missouri Method is all about.”

Duy Linh Tu teaches reporting and video storytelling courses at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. His documentary work focuses on education, science, and social justice. He is also the author of Narrative Storytelling for Multimedia Journalists (Focal Press).

Sebastian Tuinder lectures at Brooklyn College and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

In Poisoning of the Chesapeake, Tu and Tuinder examine nitrogen contamination from farms, stormwater runoff, and water temperature rise, and failed oversight in the body of water home to a multi-billion dollar fishing and recreation industry.
