The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, located at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, has announced its fall fellows.
“The Shorenstein Fellows this semester represent a diverse and highly experienced mix of professionalism and scholarship, and Dan Okrent — our visiting lecturer who is teaching a course heavily weighted toward writing — is without question one of the best writers and editors in the country,” said Alex S. Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center.
Okrent, the first public editor of The New York Times, will be the Visiting Edward R. Murrow Lecturer on the Practice of the Press and Public Policy. He will be teaching a course on writing and reporting on politics and public policy.
