McGill Lecture and Symposium
The 40th McGill Lecture will be given by Marina Walker Guevara, deputy director of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, an independent network of reporters headquartered in Washington, D.C. Walker Guevara, a John S. Knight fellow at Stanford University, has managed the two largest collaborations of reporters in journalism’s history: the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers. Her work has won and shared more than 40 national and international awards.
The late afternoon lecture will be on “Trust, Technology and Teamwork Can Reveal a Global Truth.”
For nearly 40 years, the McGill Lecture has brought significant figures in journalism to the University of Georgia to honor Ralph McGill’s courage as an editor. Also included is the McGill Symposium, celebrating its 11th year of bringing together students, faculty and leading journalists to consider what journalistic courage means and how reporters and editors exemplify it.
