Penobscot Times interviews Alumni Humanitarian Award recipient Janine di Giovanni

The Penobscot Times talked with Janine di Giovanni ’83, recipient of the 2020 Bernard Lown ’42 Alumni Humanitarian Award, for her award-winning journalism. For nearly 30 years, di Giovanni has written about conflicts on four continents. Her focus on war crimes, human rights abuses, and the plight of refugees has given voice to the voiceless. She told the Penobscot Times that former political science professor Charles Scontras’ courses were incredibly illuminating and that she occasionally still shares her articles with him.
