Newspapers struggling, new and old forms of censorship, attacks on journalists: a diverse group of writers ponder a troubled medium. As staff writer for the foreign news desk of Der Spiegel, Carolin Emcke has written about war crimes and human-rights violations in countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Colombia. Arnon Grunberg’s blog for Words Without Borders has included recent posts dealing with his travels through North and South America and a visit to the U.S. detention facility at Guantánamo Bay. Carlos María Domínguez has lived and worked in Argentina and Uruguay and his journalistic work has been collected in two books. Carlos Fresneda has worked as a journalist in Spain, Italy, and the U.S., and now serves as the U.S. correspondent for El Mundo.
