Learning From a Journalist on the Front Lines of History

charles radinProzdor students interested in journalism and Middle East politics will have the opportunity next semester to learn from a renowned reporter who has been on the front lines of history.

Charles Radin, former director of global operations and communications at Brandeis University, spent more than 30 years as a foreign correspondent and bureau chief in both Tokyo and Middle East for The Boston Globe, reporting firsthand on historic events like the fall of communism and the Second Intifada.

He will teach two courses during spring semester: “Obstacles to Peace: A Journalistic View,” evaluating how journalism affects peace and politics in the Middle East, and “Foundations of Journalism.”

"Bringing in a world-class journalist to teach is a real win for our students," said program director Dan Brosgol. "It's the perfect coming together of the criteria we seek for every class we offer: high student interest, an instructor with professional expertise, and the opportunity to learn real-world skills."
