Speaker: Katherine Corcoran
Title: “In the Mouth of the Wolf: A Murder, A Cover-up, and the True Cost of Silencing the Press”
Abstract: Katherine Corcoran will discuss her investigations as Associated Press Mexico bureau chief that led to her recently published book, In the Mouth of the Wolf: A Murder, A Cover-up, and the True Cost of Silencing the Press. It began with the murder of Regina Martinez, a Mexican journalist well-known for writing about government corruption. Corcoran travelled to Martinez’ home state of Veracruz to uncover what led to her killing. Corcoran’s work illustrates how silencing the free press—by the danger of murder—threatens basic protections and the rule of law across the globe.
Bio: Katherine Corcoran is a former Associated Press bureau chief for Mexico and Central America. She has been an Alicia Patterson fellow, the Hewlett Fellow for Public Policy at the Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame, and a Logan Nonfiction Program fellow. At the AP, she led an award-winning team that broke major stories about cartel and state violence and abuse of authority in Mexico and Central America. Her columns about Mexican politics and press freedom have appeared in the Washington Post, the Houston Chronicle, and Univision Online, among other publications. She was codirector of Cronkite Noticias, the bilingual reporting program at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and is co-leader of MasterLAB, an investigative editor training program in Mexico City.
