D. Graham Burnett, Professor of History, Princeton, is an editor at the Brooklyn-based art magazine Cabinet and serves on the editorial board of Lapham’s Quarterly. Check out his experimental essay, “Screen Capture.”
Keith Gessen, Assistant Professor of Journalism at Columbia’s School of Journalism, is a founding editor of n+1. Read his New Yorker story on the opening of the Northern Sea Route above the Russian Arctic as a result of global warming here.
Kimberly Phillips-Fein, Associate Professor of History, NYU Gallatin, writes for journals such as The Nation and The Atlantic. She was among the historians featured in New York Magazine’s “Obama History Project.”
