I just found out about it, though it had been announced back in March. In Fall 2007, Georgetown’s School of Continuing Education will begin a seminar, The Pearl Project, to “investigate motive and attempt to determine who really killed Pearl. They will also examine the wider relationship between the Muslim world and the press and profile others who have died in the frontlines of journalism.” It will be led by Asra Q. Nomani and Barbara Feinman Todd. More here.
I wish this was a congressional inquiry rather than a journalism class but every little bit helps.
