A discussion on shale gas, one of the Pulitzer Center's latest reporting projects, will span extraction in Pennsylvania and Poland. Pulitzer Center journalist Dimiter Kenarov and Emmy Award-winning videographer Stephen Sapienza will lead the presentation.

Shale gas has been seen as a "game changer:" a cleaner fossil alternative to coal and oil, the next commodity to help bring America toward energy independence. Kenarov and Sapienza will discuss controversial issues involving fracking in Poland, Europe's shale gas center, and Pennsylvania.

This event is sponsored by the Duquesne University Journalism and Multimedia Arts Department and the Pulitzer Center.

When: Monday, Feb. 4, 1 p.m.
