About the speaker
Somini Sengupta tells the stories of communities and landscapes most vulnerable to the effects of climate change — reporting from the front lines of the climate crisis, and recently focusing more and more on both China and the United States’ converging interests on global warming. Sengupta has reported from a Himalayan glacier, a Congo River ferry, the streets of Baghdad and Mumbai and many places in between. As Times’ United Nations correspondent, she reported on global challenges from war to women’s rights. She is the recipient of a George Polk Award for foreign reporting, as well as awards from the National Association of Black Journalists, the New York Newswomen’s Club and the United Nations Correspondents Association. Her book, “The End of Karma: Hope and Fury among India’s Young” was published in 2016 by W.W. Norton.

This event is sponsored by The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in partnership with the East Asia Center, Center for Global Studies, Japan Studies Program, Middle East Center, South Asia Center, Program on the Environment and School of Marine and Environmental Affairs at the University of Washington.
