Foreign correspondent to discuss the sanctions against Russia
Celestine Bohlen, columnist for the International New York Times, will speak at Yale on Wednesday, Dec. 3 as a Poynter Fellow in Journalism.
Bohlen will give a talk titled “The Sanctions Against Russia: What Did the West Expect?” at noon in Rm. 122 at Yale Law School, 127 Wall St. The event is free and open to the public.
Though Bohlen began her career at local papers in Massachusetts and New Jersey, she has spent most of her time in journalism as a foreign correspondent, working initially for The New York Times, but later the Washington Post and Bloomberg as well. She has reported from a wide variety of locations, including Moscow, Budapest, Rome, and Paris, reporting on the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Italy, the Vatican, Greece and Turkey relations, France, and the European Union.
Currently, Bohlen works as a columnist for the International New York Times and serves as a fellow this fall at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. She lives in Paris and has served as an adjunct professor of journalism at Sciences-Po for the past four years.
The Poynter Fellowship in Journalism was established by Nelson Poynter, who received his master’s degree in 1927 from Yale. The fellowship brings to campus journalists from a wide variety of media outlets who have made significant contributions to their field. Among recent Poynter fellows are Janet Mock, Seymour Hersh, and Claudia La Rocco.
