At the Aperture Gallery in NY, a panel discussion will explore conflict photojournalism and ethics.
What are the ethical responsibilities of photojournalists who choose to cover conflict? Can they be truly neutral or does one have a responsibility to reflect the moral and political imbalances of a given situation? This panel will explore the ethical pressures on photojournalists in conflict and will consider their accountability for the positions they take; the pictures they make and how they make them; where they place their images; and the voice they attach to them. The discussion will consider the responsibilities and consequences, intended and otherwise, of reporting on conflict. Moderated by Stephen Mayes, the panel will include Marcus Bleasdale, Jason Cone, Philip Gourevitch, Thomas Keenan, and Kira Pollack.

At Vanderbilt University, a panel discussion at the Associated Press Media Editors annual conference.

In the aftermath, however, reporters and editors found themselves dealing with the emotional fallout of the experience. Representatives of the Associated Press, Denver Post and the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma will discuss ways in which managers can support staff members grappling with aftereffects of violent news events. Moderated by Carole Tarrant, editor of the Roanoke (Va.) Times, featuring Dart Center executive director Bruce Shapiro and representatives of the Associated Press and Denver Post.
