UC Davis Middle East/South Asia Studies presents a public lecture by Roger Cohen, a columnist for the New York Times, on Monday, Nov. 25, in Ballroom B of the UCD Conference Center.

A reception begins at 6 p.m., with the lecture, “Bitter Spring: The Middle East after its Revolution,” at 7 p.m.

Cohen joined The New York Times in 1990. He was a foreign correspondent for more than a decade before becoming acting foreign editor on Sept. 11, 2001, and foreign editor six months later.

Since 2004, he has written a column for The Times-owned International Herald Tribune, first for the news pages and, since 2007, for the Op-Ed page. In 2009 he was named a columnist for The New York Times.

Cohen has written “Hearts Grown Brutal: Sagas of Sarajevo,” an account of the wars of Yugoslavia’s destruction, and “Soldiers and Slaves: American POWs Trapped by the Nazis’ Final Gamble.” He also has co-written a biography of Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, “In the Eye of the Storm.”
