Jun 2, 2017

TPR, in partnership with the World Affairs Council of San Antonio, hosted “A Conversation with Corey Flintoff: The Resurgence of Russia” at 6:30 p.m., on Friday, June 23, 2017, at the McNay Art Museum.  

The veteran journalist shared his observations about Russian resurgence and the evolving relationship between Putin’s Russia and the US.  Flintoff was joined on stage by Trinity University’s Dr. Bruce T. Holl, associate professor of Modern Languages & Literatures, and the editor of Russian Notes, a compendium of news and commentary on Russia.   

 

Flintoff has spent nearly 40 years as a radio journalist, serving most recently as NPR’s bureau chief in Moscow, covering Russian President Vladimir Putin's crackdown on dissent, seizure of Crimea, and war in eastern Ukraine.  He has also covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the earthquake in Haiti, the revolution in Egypt, and the revolution and civil war in Libya.

TPR is proud to partner with the World Affairs Council of San Antonio for this special event, which was also made possible, in part, by Jefferson Cano - A San Antonio Law Firm, the McNay Art Museum and St. Mary's University Graduate Studies.
