Reporter will share ‘lessons learned’ April 5 at Mingledorff-Lorimer Lecture

New York Times investigative reporter Ian Urbina will speak on “Of Outlaws, Runaways and Glue: Lessons Learned in Journalism” at the 2016 Mingledorff-Lorimer Lecture in Print Media.

Sponsored by the UGA Libraries, the lecture will be April 5 at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

“I have known and worked with Ian Urbina for several years now and have team taught a course with him, so I know the treat in store for the UGA community,” said Charles Davis, dean of the UGA Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. “This is one of the finest investigative reporters working today. His work on the world’s oceans is essential reading for anyone concerned about the state of the world these days.”

Urbina has degrees in history from Georgetown and the University of Chicago. His writings, which range from domestic and foreign policy to ­commentary on everyday life, have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Guardian and Harper’s.
