Joseph Kahn, the Pulitzer Prize-winning deputy foreign editor for The New York Times, will present a Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center Lecture, “The Challenge of Obama in the New World,” Friday, March 27, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Prior to his current assignment, Kahn served as The New York Times Beijing bureau chief, as a reporter in the Washington Bureau and as a reporter on the business desk in New York. Before joining The New York Times, he spent four years as a China correspondent for The Wall Street Journal.

He also worked as a city desk reporter and foreign correspondent for the Dallas Morning News, where he was part of a team of reporters awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for stories on violence against women around the world. He also received the Pulitzer Prize, the Harry Chapin Media Award and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for stories about China.

Kahn received a bachelor’s degree in American history and a master’s degree in East Asian studies from Harvard.
