Phi Beta Kappa Lecture Series at GSE: Nicholas Kristof

Last night, the Graduate School of Education sponsored a lecture as part of the Phi Beta Kappa Lecture Series, which was established by the Society in an effort to provide members with greater opportunities for intellectual fellowship, and to allow the Society to return to its historic role of participation in larger, national dialogue about the important issues of our time. The lecture was open to the GSE community as well as to Phi Beta Kappa members, and was very well attended, with almost 200 people in the audience.

The speaker was Nicholas Kristof, New York Times journalist, author and columnist, widely recognized for winning a Pulitzer Prize in 2006 for his work exposing genocide in Darfur through his columns, who spoke about his newest book, “Half The Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity For Women Worldwide.” The lecture was followed by a reception and book signing.
