Beyond War in Afghanistan: Anna Badkhen and Vanessa Gezari at Loyola University Chicago

Thursday, November 1, 2012 - 07:00pm EDT (GMT -0400)

To mark the launch of the Campus Consortium partnership between the Pulitzer Center and Loyola University Chicago, a series of events featuring Pulitzer Center journalists will take place the week of October 29. On Thursday, November 1, journalists will share their insights on the situation in Afghanistan.

Anna Badkhen spent more than a year embedded with villagers in the most remote areas of Afghanistan to better understand the war's impact on the Afghan people. Vanessa Gezari investigated the controversial human terrain program, which puts anthropologists on the front lines alongside the military. Both will offer their unique perspectives on Afghanistan and what the future may hold for the region. Also joining the discussion is Mohammad Kazem Shakib, a native of Afghanistan and Fulbright scholar in Women's and Gender Studies at Loyola University Chicago.
