Muhammad Irtaza, a visiting Pakistani journalist, will speak to a USI journalism class about world press freedoms and Pakistani journalism at 9 a.m. Thursday, November 17, in Kleymeyer Hall in the Liberal Arts Center. The University community is invited to attend.

Irtaza has worked as a journalist in Pakistan for 11 years. He now writes for The Nation, an English daily newspaper in Multan, in the Punjab Province of Pakistan. He previously worked for the Express Tribune. He is in Evansville working with the Evansville Courier and Press in partnership with the International Center for Journalists. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State.

Irtaza will speak to Dr. Chad Tew's Introduction to Mass Communications class. Tew's students have been studying world press freedom and researching journalists who have died in the line of duty this year. The Committee to Protect Journalists lists Pakistan at the top of its list of the deadliest countries for journalists in 2011. So far this year, seven journalists have been killed while reporting in Pakistan.
