Journalism graduate heads for Harvard
Kevin Doyle, a graduate of DCU’s Masters in Journalism, has been selected as one of 12 journalists from around the world to be a Nieman Fellow at Harvard for the next academic year.
Kevin, who graduated from DCU in 1996, is editor-in-chief of The Cambodia Daily in Phnom Penh. During his year in Harvard, he will explore the rise of market freedoms among illiberal governments in Southeast Asia. Kevin has experienced arrest and criminal prosecution in connection with his journalism in Cambodia.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard selected a total of 25 journalists from the United States and abroad. The 12 international fellows include the editor of a Panamanian newspaper, the founder of an investigative journalism centre in Romania, a reporter who covers Iran for The New York Times and the editorial page editor of a Russian business daily.
“The new fellows are a highly talented group of journalists with extraordinarily diverse backgrounds and interests. Together, they’ll have the opportunity to share their expertise and learn from each other as they take full advantage of the exceptional educational resources available at Harvard,” said Nieman Foundation Curator Bob Giles.
Established in 1938, the Nieman Foundation administers the oldest mid-career fellowship programme for journalists in the world. More than 1,300 journalists from 90 countries have received Nieman Fellowships.
