Heading to Moscow

It’s time to revive this dusty old blog. Wednesday (April 28) I fly for way too many hours to Moscow.  I’m going there to speak  as part of  a World Press Freedom Day conference at Moscow State University, called “Days of American Journalism.”

I’m traveling there a few days early so that I can first visit St. Petersburg, The Hermitage Museum and the main sights of the city.

Knight Foundation grantee, Alexander Zolotarev, a Fulbrighter and Ph.D. student at Moscow State University, helped arranged the visit and will guide me around Moscow.

Following meetings at Moscow State, the U.S. Embassy and sites around the city, I then go to Taiwan, for a series of talks in Taipei, Kaohsiung and Taichung.

When I return in mid-May, I then head to Lincoln, NE, to find a place to live, as I transition into the job of Dean of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.
