From the Editors
Jadaliyya's "Media on the Margins" is a monthly show dedicated to the stories behind the news, on the fault-lines of journalism, and the fringes of public discourse. In each episode, Malihe Razazan speaks to reporters, editors, citizen journalists, and photographers to unpack their craft, interrogate their work, and uncover how the news comes to represent the world. The show shines a spotlight on stories missed, ignored, and omitted as well as the people who tell them. "Media on the Margins" is where "journalism grapples with journalism."
As the Syrian tragedy drags on, it is becoming more dangerous for journalists to cover the war-ravaged country. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, fifty-two Syrian and foreign journalists have already been killed since the war broke out in 2011 with Paris-based Reporters Without Borders citing an even higher figure of 110 deaths. In this first installment of "Media on the Margins," Malihe Razazan speaks with award winning freelenace journalist Rania Abouzeid. Since 2011, Rania has been reporting on the Syrian uprising and the subsequent civil war. Her work has been published in a number of publications including the New Yorker, The Guardian, and Al-Jazeera, among others. She also shares her experience reporting from Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan, where over 125,000 Syrians have settled so far.
