1st Annual Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture featuring the BBC’s Lyse Doucet

November 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication, through the generosity of Richard Stursberg and Judith Lawrie, has established the Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture.

The lecture honours the legacy of famed Canadian war correspondent Peter Stursberg (1913-2014), an adventurous and prolific journalist who was Canada’s last living war correspondent from the Second World War.

The inaugural Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture will be delivered by Lyse Doucet, the BBC’s award-winning Chief International Correspondent and Senior Presenter for BBC World News television and BBC World Service Radio.

Paul Kennedy, the host of the CBC Radio program Ideas, will moderate the evening.

The School is pleased to collaborate with the Canadian War Museum to offer the Peter Stursberg lecture.

The lecture will be presented in English only.
