Christopher S. Wren

Christopher S. Wren retired from The New York Times after nearly 29 years as a reporter, foreign correspondent and editor. He headed Times news bureaus in Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, Ottawa and Johannesburg, covered the United Nations, and reported from the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, China and Southeast Asia, Africa, South America and Canada.  He also worked as an editor at Look and Newsweek magazines and at the International Herald Tribune in Paris.

Wren graduated with honors from Dartmouth College and Columbia University School of Journalism and studied on graduate fellowships at the University of Edinburgh and Stanford. After leaving The Times, he lived in St. Petersburg, Russia, training Russian journalists and assisting independent newspapers across nine time-zones. In Central Asia, he ran Russian-speaking workshops for young journalists in ten cities and towns across Kazakhstan, and advised newspaper editors in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. He taught at Princeton University before coming to Dartmouth, where he is visiting professor in its Master of Arts program in liberal studies.
