Just back from fieldwork in Kenya with photographer Randy Olson, and I can’t believe the fall semester at BU is already upon us. Find photos and notes from our story-in-progress here: http://www.facebook.com/neil.shea.13

Thoughts from a trauma surgeon
April 17, 2013
National Geographic asked me yesterday to consider the Boston Marathon bombings through the lens of our nation’s wartime experience. I connected with Erin Felger, a trauma surgeon I met in Iraq several years ago when I was working on another Nat Geo story. In our Q+A, Erin offers some thoughtful comments on the challenges ahead, and those we’ve faced in the past.

And next week (April 10 - 13), I’ll be speaking at the L.Ink Festival of journalism in Bari, Italy. Sponsored in part by the University of Bari. Looking forward to meeting fellow writers and talking about journalism and its future.
