Media Advisory: The Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan To Speak at Carnegie Mellon
Event: Andrew Sullivan, a conservative author and political commentator, will speak at Carnegie Mellon University on "American Politics: A View from Home and Abroad." The talk, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Giler Humanities and International Relations and Politics Program Lecture Series.
British-born, Sullivan is well known for his provocative political and social views and his commentary as a non-U.S. citizen focusing on American political life. He is a senior editor and blogger at "The Atlantic" and a columnist for London's "Sunday Times." Distinguished by his personal style of political analysis and pioneering achievements in blog journalism, Sullivan frequently speaks at universities, colleges and civic organizations, and is a guest on American and European news and political commentary television shows. His blog, "The Daily Dish," is found on TheAtlantic.com, where his incisive and blunt observations about the news reach millions.

The International Relations and Politics Program offers students an interdisciplinary avenue to address global events and frequently brings expert political speakers to campus.
