The Daniel Pearl Foundation and Hillel at Stanford are proud to present the Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture featuring Thomas L. Friedman.

Thomas L. Friedman is an internationally renowned author, reporter, and columnist; recipient of three Pulitzer Prizes; and author of six best-selling books including From Beirut to Jerusalem, The World Is Flat and Hot, Flat, and Crowded. Friedman’s foreign affairs column in The New York Times, which he has written since 1995, reports on US domestic politics and foreign policy, Middle East conflicts, international economics, environment, biodiversity, and energy. He has been with The New York Times since 1981.

Daniel Pearl, The Wall Street Journal South Asia Bureau Chief based in Mumbai and Stanford alumnus, was murdered in 2002 while investigating terrorist networks in Pakistan. This lecture series was founded to honor Danny's commitment to the improvement of the human condition and his life’s work of connecting people through words and music.  


Due to a basketball game, parking will be extremely limited in CEMEX’s parking lot.  We recommend using Parking Structure 6 (PS6) located at 560 Wilbur Drive (at Campus Drive). It’s about a 10 minute walk to CEMEX. Please note the parking structure is located underneath Wilbur Field. 


For those who need it, we have arranged a Stanford Marguerite Bus to shuttle guests from PS6 to the lecture. The shuttle will depart from the PS6/Wilbur Field Marguerite Stop beginning at 6:00 pm and will make the round trip about every 15 minutes.  After the lecture, the shuttle will depart from the CEMEX stop and return to PS6, about every 15 minutes. 

Thank you to those individuals and organizations who have made tonight’s lecture possible.
