Plan Your Visit

This new lecture series honours the legacy of Peter Stursberg (1913‒2014), who was Canada’s last living war correspondent from the Second World War.

Delivered in collaboration with Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication, the lecture series recognizes the importance and impact of journalism that bears witness in troubled areas around the world, and will be delivered annually by a correspondent with sustained experience reporting from conflict zones.

The inaugural Peter Stursberg Foreign Correspondents Lecture will be delivered by Lyse Doucet, the BBC’s award-winning Chief International Correspondent and Senior Presenter for BBC World News television and BBC World Service radio. Paul Kennedy, host of the CBC Radio program Ideas, will moderate the evening.

The lecture will be presented in English only.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
