University of Wisconsin–Madison alumnus and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Shadid will be on campus this week to deliver an inaugural lecture on ethics and journalism.

Shadid, a foreign correspondent for the New York Times who has been recognized for his reporting on the Iraq war, will speak on “The Truths We Tell: Reporting on Faith, War and the Fate of Iraq.”

Shadid’s lecture is at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2, in the Alumni Lounge of the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St.

The ethics lecture is co-sponsored by the UW Center for Journalism Ethics and the Lubar Institute for the Study of Abrahamic Religions, with additional support from the UW Lectures Committee and the UW–Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Shadid graduated from UW–Madison in 1990 with bachelor’s degrees in journalism and political science; he also studied Arabic. Shadid earned a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 2004 for his coverage from Iraq during and after the U.S. invasion in March 2003, and he was a finalist for the prize in 2007.
