About Lauren E. Bohn
Lauren is a multi-platform freelance journalist based in Istanbul and a 2010-2011 Fulbright fellow in Egypt, where she is the founding assistant editor of a new journal, the Cairo Review.
A Pulitzer Center grantee, her ongoing reporting project “Egypt: The Country Outside the Square” is funded by the center. She was a 2012 Overseas Press Club fellow in Jerusalem with the Associated Press. A finalist for a 2012 Livingston Award, her multimedia work has been published by CNN, TIME, the Daily Beast, Foreign Policy, Businessweek, The New York Times, Salon, Global Post, Christian Science Monitor, Marie Claire, Huffington Post, and Ms. Magazine, among others. She has appeared on multiple news outlets, including CNN and CBS, to talk about the Arab uprisings and her reportage in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Syria, and Gaza. As a New York University Dean’s Scholar, she attended research colloquiums in Ghana and Greece. Bohn also spent four months studying sociology and gender studies in Prague, Czech Republic. She graduated summa cum laude from New York University in May 2009 as a John W. Withers Memorial Award recipient and Presidential Scholar, with a degree in Media, Culture, and Communication. She received Chicago’s Association for Women Journalists 2010 award for outstanding young female journalist and received her master’s degree from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism in June 2010. Originally from Philadelphia where she was named an Archdiocesan scholar and a Champion of Caring for her work in Appalachia and the Dominican Republic, Lauren has a nerdy obsession with notebooks/all things paper (and peanut butter), a chronic case of bibliophilia, and a passion for cultural anthropology and multimedia storytelling.
