David Rohde to Teach at Brown

September 20, 2011

Pulitzer-prize winner David Rohde will be teaching a course at his alma mater, Brown University, during next spring’s semester. Rhode will join the faculty as an adjunct professor of English and will teach a course titled: `Advanced Journalism: Investigative and on-line reporting.’

A 1990 Brown grad, Rhode covered wars and conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel, Palestine and the Balkans. He won a Pulitzer for his coverage of the Srebrenica massacre while a reporter at the Christian Science Monitor. He joined the New York Times in 1996 as South Asia bureau chief. In November, 2008 while in Afghanistan doing research for a book about American involvement there, Rhode and two colleagues were kidnapped and held by a Taliban commander who had invited them to an interview.

After being held for more than 7 months, Rhode and one of his Afghan colleagues escaped to freedom. Rhode and his wife, Kristen Mulvihill, a 1991 Brown grad, wrote a book about his abduction, entitled: `A Kidnapping from Two Sides.’’
