Featuring NYU Professor Brooke Kroeger

Tuesday, March 31, 2009
7:00 - 8:30 PM

Register Here

Join NYU alumni, parents and friends from your community for a very special evening of lively discussion with Professor Brooke Kroeger.

With the rise of the Internet, blogging, citizen journalism, and social networking, why do we still need to train students in the art of journalism? According to Brooke Kroeger, director of NYU's Arthur L. Carter Institute of Journalism, teaching budding journalists is more important than ever because of the lack of filters on the way we consume our news and information. Join us to hear more about how NYU is uniquely positioned to set the course for journalists in our ever evolving society.

Former New York Newsday deputy metropolitan editor and UN correspondent Brooke Kroeger is the director of NYU's Carter Journalism Institute. She has written about everything from local and state politics to sports, and early in her career, she spent eight years overseas with the United Press International after four years with the agency in Chicago. She was Tel Aviv bureau chief for three years before returning to London to serve as the agency's chief editor for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. She is the author of biographies of Nellie Bly and Fannie Hurst and a book about the phenomenon of passing for what one is not. Currently, she is researching a book on undercover reporting for the Visions of the American Press Book Series of Northwestern University Press.

Beverages and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
