On April 23rd, the A&S Department, Government & Law Department, and McKelvy House Scholars Program sponsored a talk by photojournalist Alan Chin, entitled “Covering the Contemporary Middle East: My Work in Iraq and Egypt.” Chin hosted an informal discussion and slideshow of photographs from his work documenting war in Iraq and the Arab Spring protests in Egypt for students from Prof. Lee’s A&S 210: Contemporary American Society class and others in Ramer 103. Chin has covered conflicts in Iraq, the ex-Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Central Asia, and the Middle East. The New York Times nominated his Kosovo coverage for the Pulitzer Prize twice, in 1999 and 2000. Students were intrigued by Chin’s stories about his work– especially our own class journalists, Steven Tringali ’13 and Ben Brown ’14– and moved by the photographs.
