New York Times Editor Lands Canadian Fellowship

Patti Sonntag will teach a class this fall at her Alma Mater, Concordia University.

Patti Sonntag (pictured) is currently one of several managing editors who helps oversee The New York Times news services division, or syndicate.

This fall, thanks to her recent selection as one of two recipients of a 2016 Michener-Deacon Fellowship in her native Canada, she will be teaching an intriguing class at Montreal’s Concordia University. From a recent report in The Free Press, a newspaper in her hometown of Fernie, British Columbia:

“It’s an academic project called the Corporate Mapping Project, which explores the influence of fossil fuels on Canadian political life,” Sonntag explained. “I’m going to be teaching students to use that database and our investigation will certainly be in that area.”

Sonntag, a Concordia alumnus, parlayed internships at The New Yorker and the Times into her full-time current career. She will teach the endowed course during the upcoming fall semester.
