Christiane Amanpour speaks with IAC Students, and receives Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage
Renowned CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour, who received Georgia Tech's Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage today, started her visit to our institution today with a conversation with liberal arts students. She underlined the importance of the humanities and social sciences for highest standards in truth-telling, specifically truth-telling in the face of rampant misinformation and powerful (undemocratic) forces with an interest in keeping research-based information from reaching all citizens. Great pleasure to have served on the selection committee as well as moderating this event for our fantastic students, who asked thought-provoking questions.
