Killing the Story

01 Nov 2023 14.00 - 15.00

How would you cope if you were constantly under attack for simply doing your job?

What if there was no punishment for the attackers and the authorities were a part of the problem?

This is the case for journalists in Mexico and Honduras, who are at risk of violence on a daily basis.

Dr Tamsin Mitchell shares her research into the strategies journalists use to stay safe and protect their wellbeing while investigating and reporting on corruption, drugs trafficking and human rights violations.

This talk celebrates the resistance, resilience and dedication of Mexican and Honduran journalists to mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

Taking place at the Students' Union auditorium.

Led by Dr Tamsin Mitchell, University of Sheffield in conversation with Prof Jackie Harrison, UNESCO Chair on Media Freedom, Journalism Safety and the Issue of Impunity and Chair of the Centre for Freedom of the Media (CFOM), University of Sheffield.
