Suzy Hansen, a visiting Ferris Professor of Journalism in the Humanities Council, is an author and a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine. Based in Turkey, she combined reportage, memoir, and history to write Notes on a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World, her award-winning non-fiction book about her first ten years in the Middle East that was a 2018 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Discussant Christy Wampole is a professor and the director of undergraduate studies in the Department of French and Italian.
The Humanities Council’s Program in Journalism invites faculty, graduate students, and staff to participate in the next in our series of events where 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.
