New York Times reporter and former Jerusalem bureau chief James Bennet will present a lecture on "Reporting From the Middle East: Whose Truth?" at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
A Times reporter since 1994, Bennet became the newspaper's Jerusalem bureau chief in 2001 and has reported on a broad span of politically sensitive issues related to the Arab-Israeli conflict. In May 2004, he was the subject of an attempted kidnapping by Palestinians in Gaza, while he tried to cover a story.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and is part of the "Journalists Writing the World" series moderated by Professor Gary Bass.
