When: September 8, 2014, 6:30pm
Where: Pace University, 1 Pace Plaza, Student Union B-Level, New York, NY 10038
The 9/11 Tribute Center is collaborating with Pace University to present a panel discussion by journalists who covered 9/11 for this year’s September 11th anniversary. Three editors of the book Covering Catastrophe, two photojournalists and a television reporter who covered Mayor Rudolph Giuliani will reflect back on how their experiences reporting from the midst of an unfathomable disaster have influenced their approach to their work today. The speakers will share stories that are at once personal and professional about the choices they made that day and in the years since. What stories did they cover in 2001, and what elements of those stories have endured in our interpretation of history? Which photographs have become iconic and what aspects of the story do these images etch into our cultural memory? How did journalism change after 9/11?
