The White Correspondent's Burden

How do we write about where we’re not from? Can we write about “others,” and how should we? Foreign correspondents have come under attack both for budgetary reasons (they’re expensive), and ethical ones (“locals” should tell their own stories). In this talk, Jina Moore will argue for the virtues of foreign correspondence. Outsiders can cultivate the ability to see new or different sides of insiders’ problems and strengths, and share them with the world. Ms. Moore will speak about how to develop the skill of conveying the full humanity of one’s subjects, even in the context of editorial prejudices and while reckoning with the forms of privilege that shape people’s lives.
