Award-winning religion reporter Alan Cooperman will give a free lecture at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, in the Johns Hopkins University's Bunting-Meyerhoff Interfaith and Community Service Center, 3509 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Cooperman, the national religion writer for the Washington Post, will be talking about religion and the media. He has covered religion for the Post since 2002. Having joined the Post's staff in 1999, Cooperman also served as the newspaper's national security editor, covering defense, foreign policy and intelligence. Cooperman was once foreign editor of U.S. News & World Report and also spent eight years as a foreign correspondent for the Associated Press and U.S. News & World Report, winning awards for his reporting from Moscow (1990 to 1996) and Jerusalem (1996 to 1998). He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in 1982 and got his start in journalism as a reporter at The Berkshire Eagle in Pittsfield, Mass. He lives with his wife and son in Washington, D.C. His lecture will be followed by a question and answer period.
Cooperman's lecture is part of the Homewood campus' fourth annual religious awareness days, Open Hands Open Hearts. A celebration of religion and spirituality, Open Hands Open Hearts is a collaboration of the Johns Hopkins University Interfaith Council and Campus Ministries, as well as student representatives from a variety of campus faith organizations. The program encourages open discussion to raise awareness of matters concerning faith, both in the local and global arenas, and pursues a broad range of issues facing faith communities in the modern era.
Cooperman's lecture is free and open to the public. For information, call 410-261-1880.
