Media Advisory: A Talk with Tony Blair at Yale

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will join University President Richard C. Levin for a conversation in Woolsey Hall on September 19 at 4:30 p.m. before an audience of Yale faculty, students and staff.

They will discuss Mr. Blair’s tenure as prime minister, his current efforts as Quartet Representative in the Middle East, and his new Faith Foundation, which brings him to Yale to co-teach a course this fall on Faith and Globalization. The conversation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Media wishing to cover the event must register for credentials with the Yale Office of Public Affairs. Send an email with your name, affiliation, a photograph and telephone number to opa@yale.edu. Organizations wishing to send more than one representative should send a single email with the required information for all individuals who will be covering the event.

Media credentials may be picked up at the Yale Office of Public Affairs during working hours beginning at 11:00 AM on Thursday, September 18 and ending at 2:30 p.m. on the day of the event. There will not be any access to Woolsey Hall without a Yale-issued media credential. Credentials are not transferable.

There will be reserved seating for media members in the center of the balcony in Woolsey Hall. There will also be risers and a mult box at that location for electronic media and photographers. Media members should enter Woolsey Hall by 3:45 p.m. Video crews may begin setting up at 2:30 p.m.

Mr. Blair is co-teaching a seminar at Yale as a Howland Distinguished Fellow.  His teaching colleague is Professor Miroslav Volf, the director of the Center for Faith and Culture. The seminar is a joint offering of the School of Management under Dean Joel M. Podolny and the Divinity School under Dean Harold Attridge.
