Award-winning independent reporter and photographer, Dahr Jamail, will be at Sonoma State University on Thursday, November 13, 2008, to present his #1 ranked story, published in the Censored 2009 yearbook, as part of the Modern Media Censorship Lectures.

According to the investigative journalist, violence in Iraq has caused an exodus of almost 5 million people since 2003. Despite official claims to the contrary, more Iraqis are fleeing their homes than the numbers who are returning. Says one displaced Iraqi engineer, "There is no Iraq to return to, my friend. Iraq only exists in our dreams and memories."

A former NY Times foreign desk chief calls Jamails reporting, "international journalism at its best." Jamail writes for a wide number of press outlets including Inter Press Service, The Asia Times, The Nation, and Foreign Policy in Focus. He reports for Democracy Now! and the BBC, and is a special correspondent for Flashpoints radio.

Jamail hosts a website where he publishes his hard-hitting reports about the Mideast. He recently produced a book detailing his experiences in Iraq entitled "Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq."

Lecture begins at 7 PM
Darwin 103
Series host: Prof. Mickey Huff
