Ben Taub, International Correspondent, The New Yorker

HC2023 - Kondysar Presentation
Global Studies "From the Field" Lecture Series presents "Doctors and Dictators: Hunting for Truth in Post-Truth Syria," a lecture by Ben Taub, international correspondent for "The New Yorker".

Ben Taub, a 26 year-old journalism Wunderkind, is an international correspondent for the prestigious "New Yorker"magazine, with authoritative articles already to his credit on terrorism, the Syrian War and refugees issues, notably his recent articles "The Assad Files", and "The Shadow Doctors". His writing is noted for the calm and distinctive way in which he locates and reports the mind-numbing everyday facts of total war.

A 2014 graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism and accomplished singer, Taub financed his early field travel to refugee camps through his earnings as a contestant on The Voice. In 2015, he won the OPC Foundation Emmanuel R. Freedman Scholarship. He has appeared on MSNBC, Al Jazeera and the Nation, and is a contributor to various news sources in addition to his "New Yorker" work.

The "From the Field" lecture series actively seeks guest presenters who can give our audience a direct, original and exciting understanding of how it feels to work "hands-on" on globally-minded projects. It chooses every semester a topic of high visibility in the current news. Past lectures have included the Ebola crisis, the challenges of global cartooning and the vibrant musical beat of the African Diaspora.

The talk is sponsored by the Global Studies Program the Center for Civic Engagement in the School of Liberal Arts, the School of Communication & the Arts, and the Center for Multicultural Affairs.
