The day before the 2018 midterm elections, join us for an evening with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. Perhaps best known for his coverage of global events, Kristof has twice won the Pulitzer Prize for covering Tiananmen Square and the genocide in Darfur. He is also a best-selling author with his wife Sheryl WuDunn, and a recipient of a number of awards, including the Anne Frank Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Award.
His talk, part of Humanities Washington’s statewide fall series “Moment of Truth: Journalism and Democracy in the Age of Misinformation,” will examine the relationship between the humanities, journalism, and democracy. Kristof will draw on his incredible career covering stories in the US and abroad to speak to our own tumultuous political environment.
This event is sponsored by the Gonzaga University Center for Public Humanities and Humanities Washington. Humanities Washington would like to thank the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Selinger-Shone Foundation for their support of this initiative, and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
