The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School is pleased to announce the appointment of their spring 2015 fellows.
“The line-up of Shorenstein Fellows for the spring semester is a group of all-stars – every one of them,” said Alex S. Jones, the center’s director.
Shorenstein Center Fellows spend the academic semester researching, writing, participating in events and interacting with students, faculty and the Harvard community. Since 1986, the fellowship program has welcomed more than 250 accomplished journalists, scholars and politicians from around the globe.
