DURHAM, N.H. -- Former Christian Science Monitor writer and documentary photographer Sara Terry will discuss her latest work documenting the aftermath of war in Bosnia Thursday, March 2, 2006, at 4 p.m. in Memorial Union Building Theatre I at the University of New Hampshire. The talk, part of the New Hampshire International Seminar Series, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served at 3:40 p.m.

Terry is an award-winning journalist who made a mid-career transition to documentary photography in 1997. She was the Christian Science Monitor’s lead reporter on a series about the mistreatment of children in the developing world and a founding reporter for Monitor Radio. She received numerous awards, including two from the Overseas Press Club, and was featured in the 1991 book “Women on Deadline” as one of the top 10 female reporters in the United States.

In 2000, Terry began work on a photo documentary project about the aftermath of war in Bosnia, and in 2005 her book, “Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace,” was published. Her work in Bosnia inspired her to launch the Aftermath Project, a nonprofit foundation that gives grants to photojournalists documenting the aftermath of conflict.
