Rayhan Forestier-Walker, the BBC's Central Asia correspondent, is coming to talk to students in the UG newsroom at 1pm next Thursday lunchtime, 8 November.
Rayhan is an ethnic Uzbek who has reported on the conflict in Kyrgystan. She does online, TV and radio.
This talk is unmissable for students of Reporting Conflict -- and also those who are interested in foreign reporting.
