Crown Lecture in Ethics

Jason DeParle T'82, P'22, reporter for The New York Times and author of the new book "A Good Provider is One Who Leaves: One Family and Migration in the 21st Century," will give The Crown Lecture in Ethics at Duke University on Monday, Nov. 11, 2019 at 6 p.m.

Prof. Philip Bennett of the Sanford School of Public Policy and DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy will interview him in a fireside chat-style discussion. The talk is free and open to the public, and seating is limited. Free parking in the Public Policy lot.

DeParle has written extensively about poverty and immigration. His recent book follows an extended family of Filipino immigrants from the slums of Manila to the suburbs of Houston and tells the larger story of global migration. He argues that the politics of immigration are broken, but that immigration itself remains an under-appreciated American success. He also recently had a long-form profile on Duke alumnus Stephen Miller in The New York Times. DeParle is a recipient of the George Polk Award and is a two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.

The lecture will be streamed on the Sanford School's Facebook and YouTube pages.
