Investigative Journalist Lucia Mimiaga Visits AUS

Investigative journalist Lucia Mimiaga visited Antioch University Seattle’s Designing Communication seminar in October 2017 on her way back from a special Hedgebrook writing retreat on Whidbey Island.

As the director of the investigative unit of El Debate, a major newspaper in Culiacán, Mimiaga is one of the only women journalists in the state, the birthplace of the violent Sinaloa drug cartel. Antioch students interviewed her about her life as a reporter. She described the hazards of being an investigative journalist in Mexico today, as well as the possibilities to make change through the stories she covers; stories of violence, poverty, but also, profiles of those fighting for positive alternatives.

Most of the students in Designing Communication are in the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program, with a Communication and Media area of concentration.
