On November 9, 2022, award-winning PBS NewsHour international correspondent Jane Ferguson will discuss how her reporting takes her into the most dangerous places on Earth. Ferguson's talk is part of the inaugural Campus Consortium visit to the University of Oklahoma.
Her reporting has included the campaigns against ISIS in Iraq and Afghanistan, the humanitarian impact of war in Yemen, famine in South Sudan, the Taliban's return to power in Afghanistan, the contentious Brazilian presidential election, and the ongoing cold war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Her work has won several awards, including a Peabody, an Alfred duPont honor, an Emmy, the George Polk, an Overseas Press Club of America honor, and the Gracie.
Ferguson has been a Pulitzer Center grantee since 2016. In 2020, she became a guest Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton University. She was based in the Middle East for 12 years and now lives in New York City.
This public talk is part of a two-day Campus Consortium visit to the University of Oklahoma. The visit will also include conversations with students in class sessions.
