March 31, 2022: UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations Hosts Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture

On Thursday, March 31, 2022, from 12 – 1:15 pm PT, the Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture Series will return to UCLA's Burkle Center to once again honor the memory of the prominent journalist who dedicated his life to bringing truth, joy, and understanding to the world. This year's featured guest is the distinguished French philosopher, activist, and author Bernard-Henri Lévy, chosen by Daniel Pearl's father, Judea, in collaboration with UCLA's Burkle Center. Lévy is known for his political activism, social involvement, and various books and articles that have been translated into several different languages.  

The UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations "fosters research on and promotes discussion of international relations, U.S. foreign policy, and complex issues of global cooperation and conflict. They bring the brightest minds in these fields to UCLA and encourage faculty and students to explore and shape debate."

The Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture Series is free and open to the public. Due to the pandemic, the Burkle Center has pivoted to virtual lectures, providing people worldwide access to conversations that can spark new discussions and ideologies. The series' most recent lecture, hosted in February of 2021, is now available to watch on the Center's website.

GRoW @ Annenberg is a proud sponsor of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture Series, particularly in 2022, the 20th Anniversary marking his death.
