Judith Matloff (2020) is a seasoned foreign correspondent who has taught conflict reporting at Columbia Journalism School for nearly two decades. Her stories from five continents have appeared in Reuters, The New York Times Magazine, Forbes, Time, Newsweek, The Economist, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. Her first three books won support from the MacArthur Foundation, the Fulbright Scholar program and Stanford’s Hoover Institution. Matloff has pioneered security training for leading media organizations around the world, helping hundreds of journalists survive an increasingly dangerous profession.
As a Logan fellow, Judith will work on her new book, a safety guide for the general public that covers nearly every imaginable peril. “How To Drag a Body and Other Safety Tips You Hope To Never Need” will be published by HarperCollins this year.
