SAIS Perspectives, the Dean’s Forum, The Big Picture, and Focus On The Story will be co-hosting a panel discussion and photo exhibition on October 23 to celebrate the winners of the SAIS Perspectives photo contest and discuss the power of photography to shape how we think about poverty, violence, and inequality.
Photojournalist James Whitlow Delano will share his recent work on the impact of President Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war on poor families in the Philippines. A discussion between Delano and SAIS International Development Program Director Prof. Tanvi Nagpal will examine the relationship between photography, advocacy, and policy.
We will also announce the winners of the contest and display their amazing photos at a reception after the talk, alongside Delano’s work and an exhibition of award-winning photography curated by Focus on the Story.
Location: Kenney Auditorium, SAIS DC campus
Time: 4:30pm, Tuesday, October 23, 2018
SAIS Perspectives' International Development Roundtable Series covers events hosted by the International Development program at SAIS, which bring prominent speakers from the policy and international development community to the SAIS campus.
We hosted our Annual Photo Exhibition and Launch Event for this academic year on October 30th, 2017 on both the SAIS DC and SAIS Bologna campuses. During the events on either campus, we first unveiled our theme for the 2017-18 version of the publication - Development for All. Then our guest speakers - Fei Yu, Deputy Representative at the North American Representative Office of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in Washington DC and Prof. Federico Rossi in Bologna - made their remarks on our theme. Last, we revealed the winners of this year's SAIS Perspectives Photo Contest - Samuel Reynolds' (BO '18) picture of kids playing in trees in Papua New Guinea was this year's winner. Both events were followed by receptions.
