At the Columbia Journalism School in New York City, a discussion with three young journalists about the formative experience of covering the war in Iraq.
The Iraq war has shaped the everyday lives and experiences of an entire generation. For close to a decade it has been covered by news media across the globe but particularly uniquely by formidable young journalists who comprise "Generation Iraq". Please join us for a panel discussion with Magnum photographer Peter van Agtmael, VII photographer Ashley Gilbertson and New Yorker writer Sarah Stillman along with Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now and author of Breaking the Sound Barrier, as they discuss what it has meant to cover the war that has served as the unyielding backdrop of their lives.
