Two international broadcast journalists will visit the University of South Carolina in October to speak as part of the Walker Institute’s 50th anniversary.

Turkish CNN correspondent Fatih Turkmenoglu will speak Thursday, Oct. 6, and Dr. Marvin Kalb, a Harvard University professor and former CBS and NBC broadcast journalist for 30 years, will speak Monday, Oct. 24.

Both talks are free and open to the public.

Turkmenoglu’s talk, titled “The New Turkey at the End of the American Century,” will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Gambrell Hall, Room 153. Host of the Istanbul-based CNN Turk, he will discuss the future of Europe from a Turkish perspective. His talk is co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences’ European Studies Program and department of languages, literatures and cultures.

Kalb will discuss how Vietnam continues to shape American policy. His talk is set for 7 p.m. in Lumpkin Auditorium on the eighth floor of the Darla Moore School of Business. Kalb is the Edward R. Murrow Professor of Practice (emeritus) at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and founding director of the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy. His career included stints as bureau chief in Moscow and host of NBC’s Meet the Press. Kalb will sign copies of his latest book, “Haunting Legacy: Vietnam and the American Presidency from Ford to Obama,” after his talk.
