Ath to host October 24 talk with Ukrainian journalist
On Monday, October 24, Claremont McKenna College’s Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum speaker series will continue with a free afternoon program discussing the war in Ukraine and the efforts being made by journalists attempting to gather evidence of committed war crimes.
The open to the public program, led by award-winning investigative journalist Ana Romandash, who is also Ukrainian, will take place at 12:45 p.m. at the Athenaeum, 385 E. Eighth St., Claremont.
“With over 25,000 crimes currently under investigation in Ukraine, Romandash will highlight some of the challenges of researching, reporting, verifying real-time testimonials, and data management all while trying to tap international networks for world-wide coverage in real time,” read CMC’s description. “The role of social media as a facilitator and impediment will be highlighted alongside important ethical issues about the relationship between accountability and privacy.”
