War reporter Alex Crawford in university talk.
The Sky News reporter, who is based in South Africa, won widespread acclaim for her bravery reporting on the ground amid the Arab Spring uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East.
She was the first reporter to broadcast live from Green Square in August 2011 as rebel forces occupied the area during the Battle of Tripoli, and became the only journalist to penetrate the besieged town of Zawiyah when it was being attacked by pro-Gaddafi forces.
In 2010 she was named Woman Journalist of the Year by Women in Film and Television.
John Mair, senior lecturer in journalism at Coventry University, said: "We are honoured that Alex has chosen Coventry University as a stage."
