Dr. Donna DeCesare: "Witness: Visual Journalists Respond to Trauma"

Dr. Donna DeCesare is an author, documentary photographer and educator known for her groundbreaking coverage of the spread of U.S. gangs in Central America. She is a consultant to the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, and an associate professor of journalism at The University of Texas at Austin. RSVP required; email Courtney Meador by 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31.

DeCesare's newly published book, "Unsettled / Desasosiego: Children in a World of Gangs," is both a memoir and a visual history of her experiences in Central America and Los Angeles. Her photographs and testimonies from children in Guatemala and Colombia who are former child soldiers, survivors of abuse or the stigma of HIV have assisted UNICEF in developing protocols for photographing children at risk.
