Program in Journalism

Visiting Ferris Professor Pico Iyer is an acclaimed travel writer and novelist. This year he is bringing out two very different books on Japan, his home of three decades, and the first, Autumn Light, will be published on April 16. Iyer has been a writer for TIME magazine since 1982, and is a frequent contributor to The New York Times, Harper’s, and The New York Review of Books. Discussant Christy Wampole is an author, essayist, and a professor in the Department of French and Italian.

The Humanities Council’s Program in Journalism invites faculty, graduate students, and staff to participate in a new series of events where distinguished visiting journalists and writers discuss their work and pressing issues of the day with faculty from a variety of disciplines.

These lunchtime talks—informal discussions of recent articles and forthcoming books —offer intimate looks inside the work of colleagues and an opportunity for dialogue across specialties.

Attendance by reservation only. Space is limited; RSVP to Margo Bresnen at mbresnen@princeton.edu, noting your University affiliation.
