  • Professor Lynn Chancer is coming out with a timely new book on Feminism. She almost called it ‘I’m Not a Feminist, But …’

    Then came #metoo, Hillary’s loss, and present politics. So, the new title? ‘After the Rise and Stall of American Feminism’

    “Gender-based concerns and concerns about sexuality are much more in the forefront of cultural consciousness," she says.

  • The Graduate Center of The City University of New York (CUNY) has launched a new M.A. degree in Biography and Memoir, a first-in-the-nation program for students who wish to study biography and memoir, or to become biographers and memoirists themselves. The program is currently accepting applications for fall 2019.

    The Graduate Center’s newest master’s program is an interdisciplinary collaboration between two doctoral programs, English and History, and the renowned Leon Levy Center for Biography.

    The Levy Center, generously funded by Shelby White and directed by Pulitzer Prize–winning biographer Kai Bird, hosts resident biographers through its fellows program each year, and puts on dozens of sold-out public programs featuring prominent biographers.

    White’s generous support has made it possible for The Graduate Center to offer two $5,000 merit scholarships to incoming students in the M.A. program in Biography and Memoir.

    “The Graduate Center is uniquely positioned to offer this timely program in biography and memoir in New York City,” said Joy Connolly, interim president of The Graduate Center. “Our academically rich, interdisciplinary approach is enhanced by our connection to the extraordinary Leon Levy Center and elevated by our distinguished and award-winning faculty.”
