The editor of the Cambodia Daily newspaper in Phnom Penh will discuss “Media and Freedom in Cambodia,” 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, in Old Main 234 on the Texas State University-San Marcos campus.

Kevin Doyle, editor-in-chief of the Cambodia Daily, is currently a 2011 Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. Doyle, who has been arrested in Cambodia in pursuit of his work, was convicted in 2009 on charges of defamation, for publishing comments by a member of the country’s opposition party that were critical of high-ranking officials.

The presentation, free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by Texas State’s Center for International Studies and the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. For more information, contact Sandhya Rao in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at
