Embedded in Afghanistan — Photojournalists Report the War

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

University of Oregon journalism Professor Dan Morrison and freelance journalist (and UO Journalism alumna) Cali Bagby recently spent a number of months embedded with the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment in Marjah, located in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan, just north of the Pakistani border. Morrison is a veteran writer-photographer who has worked in over 31 foreign countries, including five war zones. Bagby is freelance journalist who, just prior to reporting in Afghanistan, was embedded for 10 months in Iraq with a Medevac unit with the Oregon Army National Guard. Join them as they share their experiences and vivid examples of on-the-ground photojournalism and discuss the daily challenges and ethical issues of war reporting.
