WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass., February 28, 2020—David Shribman, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter at The Boston Globe and The New York Times, will deliver a talk titled “The New Architecture of American Politics” at Williams College. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, March 12, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in Griffin Hall, room 3.

Shribman will discuss the cross currents of the contemporary political scene in the United States, from February’s Senate vote acquitting President Trump to March’s Super Tuesday Democratic primary to the possible outcomes and consequences of the 2020 election.

When Shribman won the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting, he was serving as The Boston Globe’s Washington bureau chief, as well as a columnist. He has since written for The Washington Star, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, and he served as the executive editor of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for 16 years.

This event is sponsored by the Leadership Studies department, the Lecture Committee, and the W. Ford Schumann ’50 Program in Democratic Studies, now in its second year.
