Reporting on the front lines of history in Greece

Welcome to Borderland

Welcome to Borderland, a project of students in Princeton University’s global journalism seminar, “Reporting on the Frontlines in Greece.”

In June and July 2017,  students traveled to Athens and the island of Lesbos, notebooks and cameras in hand, to serve as eyewitnesses at a pivotal moment in world affairs. Their challenging assignment: Produce a compelling and rigorous first rough draft of history. Follow this site and #PUGreece in your social media, and join us on our journey along the border between  Europe and Asia, modern and ancient, affluent and wanting, Christian and Muslim. We call it the Borderland.

ABOVE: Several hundred refugees launched westward under cloak of darkness from a Turkish beach on March 15, 2016. They were picked up by this ship before sunrise and delivered safely to this dock on the Greek island of Lesbos.
