Ethan Bronner

On Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 5pm at the BU Hillel House, Ethan Bronner delivered the 2013 Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture on the journalistic challenges of covering the Middle East conflict. Mr. Bronner, who served as the Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times from 2008 to 2012, spoke about his years on the job, especially the challenges of covering two such competing narratives. He mixed personal anecdote with policy analysis to bring the audience behind the scenes of being a foreign correspondent.
