Notre Dame to host conversation on journalism during violent conflict

Diane M. Foley, the mother of slain journalist James Foley, and Itai Anghel, Israeli correspondent and documentary filmmaker, will discuss reporting in places of dangerous conflict April 8 (Monday) from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the University of Notre Dame Eck Visitors Center auditorium.

“An Evening Remembering James Foley: Journalism and Social Justice” is free and open to the public. A question and answer session with attendees will follow presentations from Foley and Anghel.

James Foley was kidnapped by ISIS on Nov. 22, 2012, in northern Syria while reporting for GlobalPost and Agence France-Presse. He was murdered in August 2014. Less than a month after his public execution, Diane Foley founded the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation to memorialize her son’s work. The foundation has a four-part mission to inspire, educate and develop high school and university students to serve as humanitarians; build awareness of the importance of journalism in the protection of democracies around the world; advocate for the release of American hostages kidnapped abroad and stimulate research on current American hostage policy; and protect the rights of independent conflict journalists to report safely from conflict zones.

She serves as the foundation’s president and has led the efforts to fund the start of Hostage US and the international Alliance for a Culture of Safety. In 2015, she participated in the National Counterterrorism Center hostage review which culminated in the Presidential Policy Directive-30, which re-organized U.S. efforts on behalf of Americans taken hostage abroad.

Anghel, who received the 2017 Sokolov Award — the highest prize for journalism in Israel — has primarily covered conflict zones around the world. During his career, Anghel has reported from Croatia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Rwanda, Egypt, Iraq, Syria and other locations. In recent years, his assignments took him to the front line against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, and he is the only Israeli journalist to report on ISIS from within.

Anghel is a staff reporter for Uvda, a television news program in Israel. He is also a documentary filmmaker and lecturer on world conflicts at Tel Aviv University and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, a private research university in Herzliya, Israel. He is currently a Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan.  

“An Evening Remembering James Foley: Journalism and Social Justice” is sponsored by the John W. Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics and Democracy in conjunction with Notre Dame International.

Andrew Owens Wins Brooke Baker Collegiate Journalist of the Year Award for 2013

For the third time in the past four years, a student enrolled in the John W. Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics & Democracy at the University of Notre Dame is the recipient of the Brook Baker Collegiate Journalist of the Year Award.

Andrew Owens, a graduating senior in the Gallivan Program, was named the 2013 Baker Award winner at a recent ceremony of the Indiana Collegiate Press Association on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington.

Owens joins Sarah Mervosh, a 2012 Notre Dame graduate, and 2010 alumna Jenn Metz as Gallivan Program students who won the honor of being Collegiate Journalist of the Year in statewide competition, involving both public and private universities and colleges throughout Indiana.

In the past year, Owens was also the recipient of the Harry Ornest Memorial Award in Sports Journalism, which supported his summer internship during 2012 at The Los Angeles Times and provided a scholarship for his senior year at Notre Dame.

Mervosh is currently a reporter at The Dallas Morning News, and Metz is an associate producer at ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.

The Gallivan Program offers a minor in journalism for undergraduates pursuing any major at Notre Dame, and it also conducts activities (such as the Red Smith Lecture Series) to advance the understanding of contemporary journalism for the public at large.
