Carleton to Host First Annual Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture with Lyse Doucet

Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication will present the Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017. Lyse Doucet, the BBC’s award-winning chief international correspondent and senior presenter for BBC World News Television and BBC World Service Radio, will deliver the lecture.

When: Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Canadian War Museum, 1 Vimy Place, Ottawa, Ontario
Note: Paul Kennedy from CBC’s Ideas will moderate the event.

The lecture will be presented in English only.

Carleton, through the generosity of Richard Stursberg and Judith Lawrie, established the lecture to honour the legacy of famed Canadian war correspondent Peter Stursberg (1913-2014), an adventurous and prolific journalist who was Canada’s last living war correspondent from the Second World War.

The lecture recognizes the important impact of journalism that bears witness in troubled areas around the world, and will be delivered annually by a correspondent with sustained experience reporting from conflict zones.

Carleton is pleased to collaborate with the Canadian War Museum to offer the lecture.

As Canada’s national museum of military history and one of the world’s most respected institutions for the study and understanding of armed conflict and its effects, the Canadian War Museum is the ideal venue for this informed discussion and exploration of conflict, past and present.
