The Program in Journalism invites faculty, graduate students and staff to join the next in our series of events in which distinguished visiting journalists discuss their work and pressing issues of the day with faculty from a variety of disciplines. These lunchtime talks offer intimate looks inside the work of colleagues and an opportunity for dialogue across specialties.
