Award-winning journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown has been appointed Professor in Professional Practice at Middlesex University.
She recently gave a lecture at Middlesex University about being a 'journalist insider, outsider' and the responsibility of journalists - you can watch the video of her talk here.
Alibhai-Brown is an internationally known and respected journalist and commentator, and as an author and broadcaster has won several journalism and public service awards including the prestigious George Orwell Prize for political journalism.
A regular columnist for The Independent, Yasmin has written for a number of high-profile national and international publications including The Guardian, Observer, the New York Times, Time Magazine and Newsweek.
She has broken through many glass ceilings to get where she is – becoming the first person from an ethnic minority to be appointed as a section editor of a national publication, at New Society and then New Statesman, she was the also the first to get a weekly column on the main comment pages of a national newspaper – and today she continues to break new ground as the only Asian, female, Muslim weekly columnist.
Talking about Middlesex University, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown said: “I love the space and the environment, Middlesex has got a real buzz about it.”
