The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University will host a new series of discussions led by international journalists speaking on global media issues.

The series will be led by the Cronkite School's Humphrey Fellows, 10 established journalists and professional journalists from eight countries: Bangladesh, China, Croatia, Macedonia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Turkey.

In the Cronkite Global Conversations series, fellows will give firsthand accounts from some of journalism's most dangerous frontiers, including Sri Lanka, the most dangerous country for journalists in 2009, and Pakistan, the most dangerous country for journalists in 2010.

Other topics covered in the series will include international relations, disaster coverage and the role of public broadcasting in an emerging democracy.

The discussion series, which is open to the public, will take place Tuesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 355 at the Cronkite School. Cookies will be served. The schedule can be found at http://cronkite.asu.edu/events/humphreys.
