NY Times foreign correspondent Suzanne Daley on campus May 15


Suzanne DaleyOn Thursday, May 15, the Jackson School's Hellenic Studies Program presents New York Times foreign correspondent Suzanne Daley for a talk about, “The Rise of the Far Right in Europe.” The talk begins at 6 p.m. in the HUB Lyceum.

Daley became a foreign correspondent covering Europe for The New York Times in March 2010. Previously, she had been the national editor of The Times, taking over just weeks after Hurricane Katrina flattened New Orleans in 2005. During her tenure, the national desk covered events ranging from the massacre at Virginia Tech to the collapse of the Minneapolis bridge, and won a Pulitzer for a series, “The DNA Age,” which chronicled how the study of genetics was changing life for average Americans.

Daley’s previous assignments at The Times include education editor, chief of the Paris bureau, chief of the Johannesburg bureau and deputy metropolitan editor.

The event is free and open to the public.
