Jamelle Bouie, a 2009 graduate of the University who majored in Political and Social Thought and Government, has recently joined the New York Times as a regular columnist on its Op-Ed page. Jamelle has also been a Research Associate of the PST program.
Here's the announcement made the the Times's editors:
"We’re very happy to tell you that Jamelle Bouie is joining Times Opinion as a columnist, the newest member of the most excellent and eclectic lineup of opinion voices in English-language journalism. Most of you probably know Jamelle as the chief political correspondent for Slate, a perch from which he’s consistently driven understanding of politics deeper by bringing not only a reporter’s eye but also a historian’s perspective and sense of proportion to bear on the news. His interests, as you will certainly know if you’ve been a reader of his newsletter as well as his columns, range well beyond politics to the visual arts, food and movies.
Before he joined Slate, Jamelle was a staff writer at The Daily Beast and held fellowships at The American Prospect and The Nation magazine. His work has also appeared in The Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker and The Virginia Quarterly Review. Jamelle is also a political analyst for CBS News and regularly appears on the round table of “Face the Nation.”... He lives in Charlottesville, Va., and will continue to be based there."
