Understanding Our New World - A Conversation with Daniel Kurtz-Phelan
Join us on Friday, October 7, at 10 a.m. CT for a virtual conversation with Daniel Kurtz-Phelan, the editor of Foreign Affairs, as part of the Institute’s Understanding Our New World series.

Kurtz-Phelan and Institute Director John Shaw will discuss the global impact of Foreign Affairs, Kurtz-Phelan’s career in diplomacy and journalism, and his book, “China Mission.”

Kurtz-Phelan is a graduate of Yale University and has served in the US State Department as both a speechwriter and in its Policy Planning Office. He was the executive editor of Foreign Affairs prior to being named the seventh editor of Foreign Affairs in 2020.

“Foreign Affairs is the most important international affairs journal in the world and has been for virtually all of its 100-year history. It has published some of the most important foreign policy essays in American history and has played an important role in shaping how Americans think about the world,” said Shaw

“Mr. Kurtz-Phelan is a skilled writer and editor. His book, “The China Mission” provides an important and original perspective on one of America’s great solider-diplomats, George Marshall,” Shaw added.

This event is part of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute’s Understanding Our New World virtual conversation series with government and private sector leaders, policy experts, political analysts, authors, and journalists.
