Hana Elias, MS '19, will be moderating a Q&A with Shatha Hanaysha, a Palestinian journalist from Jenin in the occupied West Bank. She has worked as a field journalist and reporter for several news websites and TV stations, including Middle East Eye. She has covered the region since 2015, often reporting on raids by Israeli occupation forces into Jenin and elsewhere in the West Bank. In May 2022, while reporting in Jenin as a correspondent for Ultra Palestine, she survived the shooting that killed Al Jazeera Correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh. She earned her bachelor’s in Palestine and is now pursuing a Master’s in Media Studies at the American University of Beirut. This event is co-sponsored by the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, the Li Center on Global Journalism, and CJS_AMEJA.
