Brent E. Huffman is an associate professor of journalism at Medill as well as a working documentary filmmaker and director of long-form television programs. Huffman has directed, produced, written, shot and edited documentaries and long-form videos for a variety of outlets, including The New York Times, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, CNN, TIME, PBS, Al Jazeera and the China Exploration and Research Society.

“Saving Mes Aynak,” his recent documentary, is about an ancient archaeological site in Afghanistan threatened by a Chinese state-owned copper mine. It has won over 20 major awards and has been broadcast on television in over 50 countries. 

The Buffett Institute Faculty & Fellows Colloquium brings together an interdisciplinary audience to build awareness of global research on campus. This series promotes dialogue on scholarship and develops a deeper sense of community among Buffett Institute affiliates. Each meeting lasts one hour; lunch is provided. Due to space constraints, we will not admit attendees once the space reaches capacity.
