Sean M. Kennedy is a writer, academic, teacher, and organizer based in New York. After a decade in the media (including stints at Interview, New York, and The Advocate), he earned an MFA in fiction at Rutgers University–Newark and is now pursuing a PhD in English at the CUNY Graduate Center. His BA, in English and modern studies, is from the University of Virginia.
At CUNY, I research questions of global political economy and governance, decolonization, and cultural and media form, work as a Writing Across the Curriculum fellow at LaGuardia Community College (having previously taught at Medgar Evers College, Lehman College, Borough of Manhattan Community College, and Rutgers–Newark), and serve as the coordinator for advocacy and education for the CUNY Adjunct Project. My essays and criticism have appeared in Bookforum, Salon, Elle, The Millions, Time Out New York, on CNN.com, and as blog posts on this site.
I live in the East Village after many years in Williamsburg.
