America's Shadow Wars and the Role of the Media event will highlight the relationship between the intelligence community and the media. The event is a collaboration between the school and the Peace, War and Defense curriculum. The Knott Distinguished Visiting Professor of the Practice Admiral Dennis Blair will make introductions and Adam Hochberg will moderate.

Mark Mazzetti is a New York Times Washington investigative correspondent, a job he assumed after covering national security from The Times's Washington bureau for 10 years. He was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for reporting on Donald Trump’s advisers and their connections to Russia.

In 2009, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the intensifying violence in Pakistan and Afghanistan and Washington's response. The previous year, he was a Pulitzer finalist for revelations about the C.I.A.'s detention and interrogation program.

He is the author of "The Way of the Knife," a New York Times best-selling account of the secret wars waged by the C.I.A. and Pentagon since the Sept. 11 attacks. He is a three-time recipient of the George Polk award.

Sponsored by the Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense and the Hussman School of Journalism and Media
