All are invited to join us for a conversation with Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist and one of American Photo Magazine’s five most influential photographers of the past 25 years, Lynsey Addario. Addario is best known for her photographs of the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, South Sudan, and Congo.
Addario will discuss her photography, which, as the citation for her 2009 MacArthur Fellowship (the “genius grant”) proclaims, “demystifyies foreign cultures and exposes the tragic consequences of human conflict.” Her recent work includes coverage of Syrian refugees, the expansion of ISIS into Iraq, and Sierra Leone’s maternal mortality. Addario also recently released her memoir “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War.”
This event is hosted by Northeastern University’s Scholars Program and the Civic Engagement Program. The Scholars Seminar is Northeastern’s first open-classroom style course designed collaboratively by students, and it features thought-leaders and change-makers from both inside and outside the university. The Scholars Seminar gives students insight into the groundbreaking work of Northeastern’s innovative and distinguished faculty across the disciplines, as well as access to authors, activists, artists, and journalists who are shaping national conversations on issues of vital importance.
This event is free and open to the public.
