The Ethics and Public Policy Center is pleased to welcome acclaimed journalist Lance Morrow as a visiting fellow. Mr. Morrow’s work at EPPC will focus on the moral dimensions of public events, including developments in regard to freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and political correctness on American campuses.
Mr. Morrow is also at work on a book about Henry Luce and the role of his magazines—especially Time and Life—in shaping American opinion and public policy in the middle third of the twentieth century. In addition to the book’s historical interest, it will shed light on the very different dynamics of media that are now at work in the digital age.
“Lance Morrow brings to his new role at EPPC a wealth of insight and experience from his distinguished career as a journalist and author,” said EPPC President Ed Whelan. “At a time when free speech is embattled and journalism often lacks seriousness, Lance’s keen analysis will advance EPPC’s work of defending America’s founding ideals.”
“I’m happy to have the chance to work alongside EPPC’s scholars in addressing some of the most vital issues in today’s world, including ongoing threats to the First Amendment. More than ever, I’m convinced of the importance of the Judeo-Christian tradition in guiding our public life,” said Mr. Morrow.
Mr. Morrow is the author of seven books and is a two-time winner of the National Magazine Award. His award-winning essays, appearing in Time, Smithsonian, The New York Times, The Atlantic, and other publications, have offered probing analyses of American culture and politics in the transition from the 20th to the 21st century.
Mr. Morrow wrote about every presidential election from Nixon to Obama, wars from Vietnam to Bosnia to the Middle East. He was the author of more than 150 cover stories for Time, including eight Man of the Year articles.
