A Convocation by Dr. Peter Chilson

Add to your calendar
Date: April 30, 7:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: Western State Colorado University Center Ballroom
Details: “What happens when a country suddenly splits in two? In 2012, Mali, once a poster child for African democracy, all but collapsed in a succession of coups and countercoups as Islamist rebels claimed control of the country's north, making it a new safe haven for al Qaeda. Prizewinning author Peter Chilson became one of the few Westerners to travel to the conflict zone in the following months to document conditions on the ground.” Chilson is a writer for the Borderlands series, a collaboration between Foreign Policy and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
 
 
Dr. Chilson’s new e-book, We Never Knew Exactly Where: Dispatches from the Lost Country of Mali, is available on the Foreign Policy website: http://www.foreignpolicy.com.
