Journalism: Albert Camus Panel Discussion


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 journalism on Algeria from the 1930s through the 1950s, provides the historical context for this panel. Most great writers are also superb reporters. 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.


Pete Hamill, Distinguished Writer In Residence, NYU Journalism Institute


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
