I have written for  The Nation, Elle, The BelieverThe Boston Globe, the New Yorker online, and Dissent, where I am editor-at-large. My work has been collected in The Best of the Believer Music Interviews and The Feminist Utopia Project.

Until May 2012, I was an undergraduate at Harvard, where I studied ancient and Renaissance history. As a student, I wrote a column about women at the university for The Crimson, was an editor at The Advocate and worked for the head of the Harvard library. From 2010 to 2011, I was a Ledecky Fellow at Harvard Magazine.

After graduation, I spent a year studying ancient papyrus and early Christianity at Oxford as a Henry Fellow. I live in New York, where I am an editor at The New York Review of Books.
