About the Speaker
As a journalist with well over fifteen years experience in the Middle East,
Rania Abouzeid knows the history of the region, how it impacts current events
and how social and cultural conditions shape today’s news.
Born in New Zealand, Abouzeid grew up in Australia and was schooled there,
but is the daughter of Lebanese immigrants. She traveled to Beirut during its
civil war for family vacations. Even in war, there was life in Beirut, a
childhood lesson that guides her work.
Abouzeid is a print and television journalist, fluent in Arabic. She has been
honored with half a dozen awards including the 2015 Michael Kelly Award, the
2014 George Polk Award for Foreign Reporting, and the 2013 Kurt Schork Award
in International Journalism. Her first documentary, Syria: Behind Rebel
Lines, won a Canadian Screen Award. Shortlisted for at least a dozen other
international accolades, including thrice a finalist for the Bayeux-Calvados
Award for War Correspondents and twice for the One World Media International
Journalist of the Year, she has received fellowships from the European
Council on Foreign Relations, New America, and the Ochberg at Columbia
University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Abouzeid has been invited to
writing residencies at Yaddo and the Carey Institute’s non-fiction program,
both in New York, to work on her first book, No Turning Back. Life, Loss, and
Hope in Wartime Syria.
Abouzeid has written for TIME, the New Yorker, Foreign Affairs, National
Geographic, Foreign Policy, Politico, The Guardian, the Los Angeles Times,
The Australian, CSM, and a host of other publications, and have appeared on
France 24, BBC, CBC, CBS, PBS, Al-Jazeera and Channel 4 to name a few
television and radio outlets. She has given talks and participated in panel
