The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, located at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, is pleased to announce its 2012 Spring Fellows and Visiting Faculty.

“This semester the Shorenstein Center will once again be bursting with brain power and talent,” said Alex Jones, the center’s director. “Pulitzer Prize–winner Ron Suskind has a life’s worth of writerly wisdom to impart; Micah Sifry and Susan Crawford are on the forefront of the digital revolution; Nazila Fathi is a courageous Iranian journalist; David Greenway is one of the nation’s most respected commentators on foreign affairs, and Nina Easton is a star of political reporting.”

Shorenstein Fellows spend the semester researching and writing a paper, and interacting with students and members of the Harvard community.

Nina Easton is a Goldsmith Fellow at the Shorenstein Center.

Nazila Fathi is a journalist, translator and commentator on Iran.

H.D.S. (David) Greenway is a contributing columnist for the Boston Globe, the International Herald Tribune, and GlobalPost.

Ron Suskind is the A.M. Rosenthal Writer-in-Residence.

Two distinguished visiting faculty will be joining the Shorenstein Center.

Susan Crawford is the Visiting Stanton Professor of the First Amendment at Harvard Kennedy School and a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.

Micah L. Sifry is the Visiting Murrow Lecturer of the Practice of Press and Public Policy.
