Hofstra University’s Center for Civic Engagement will present “Eastern European Journalism at a Crossroads” on Wednesday, October 26, at 1 p.m. for its annual Day of Dialogue, and the public is welcome to attend.
Three top journalists from across Eastern Europe and the founder of Ukrainian Americans of Long Island will speak about the issues they are facing — and expect to face in the coming years — as events in Ukraine reverberate across the region and around the globe. The three journalists are taking part in a two-week program in Washington, D.C., and New York City on “Reporting Complexity,” led by the nonprofit World Learning and funded by the U.S. Department of State via the Fulbright commissions in Romania, Bulgaria and Poland. Some 18 journalists from 12 countries are part of the program.
The speakers are Mădălin Necșuțu (Romania – Correspondent for Balkan Investigative Reporting Network), Sylwia Czubkowska (Poland – Managing Editor of Spider’sWeb+), Tsvetelina Sokolova (Bulgaria – Editor at Mediapool.bg), and Volodymyr Tsyalkovsky (Technology Specialist at Wolters Kluwer & Volunteer and Community Liaison at Ukrainian Americans of Long Island).
Mario Murillo of the Herbert School of Communication and Scott Brinton, an assistant professor of journalism at Hofstra University and the immediate past president of the Press Club of Long Island, will serve as moderators.
The event will run from 1 to 2:25 p.m. in Breslin Hall, Room 211. Advance registration is required. RSVP at news.hofstra.edu/event/day-of-dialogue-2022-eastern-european-journalism-at-a-crossroads.
