Mr. Shadid is a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and is stationed in Baghdad. Fluent in Arabic, he has focused much of his work on the experiences of the Iraqi citizens, which he highlighted in his highly acclaimed book, Night Draws Near: Iraq’s People in the Shadow of America’s War. Shadid has been reporting from the Middle East for over 15 years for the Boston Globe, Associated Press, Washington Post, and now The New York Times.
This visit, co-sponsored by the Center for Journalism Ethics at UW-Madison and partially funded by the University Lectures Committee, will also allow Shadid to meet with interested students and local journalists to further discuss the topics of religion and reporting during his stay.
