DEBORAH CAMPBELL has spent more than a decade reporting from such places as Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, the UAE, Israel, Palestine, Mexico, Cuba and Russia. Much of her work is "immersive journalism" that involves living among the societies she covers. Her writing has appeared in Harper's, The Economist, The Guardian, New Scientist, Foreign Policy and The Walrus, among others, and she is the recipient of three National Magazine Awards. She has guest lectured at Harvard, Berkeley, Zayed University in Dubai, the Munk School of Global Affairs, the Liu Institute for Global Issues and the National Press Club in Washington, and has commented on Middle East and media issues for CBC's The Current and The New York Times. She teaches at the University of British Columbia.
