Journalism: Albert Camus

April 28th, 2015

6:00PM - 8:00PM

20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor

Most great writers are also superb reporters.

The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute invites you to a panel discussion on the journalism
of author and philosopher, Albert Camus. Algerian Chronicles, a collection of Camus’s
reporting and letters from Algeria during the 1930s through the 1950s,
provides the historical starting point for this conversation.

Here is Albert Camus, long before he won the Nobel Prize in Literature,
before his novels and short stories and plays, telling us what he saw, and heard, and felt
in the lost country of Algeria. In these dreadful times, he is still teaching us his lessons.

Moderator:
Pete Hamill, Distinguished Writer In Residence, NYU Journalism Institute 

Panelists:
Arthur Goldhammer, Center for European Studies, Harvard University, translator of Algerian Chronicles
Adam Gopnik, journalist and staff writer for The New Yorker
Elizabeth Hawes, author, Camus, a romance
