Jill Abramson To Teach At Harvard This Fall

Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson will be returning to her alma mater as a visiting lecturer, Harvard University announced Thursday.

She will teach narrative nonfiction courses in Harvard’s English department for the upcoming fall and spring semesters, the university said.

Abramson has kept a low profile since she was ousted from the top of the New York Times’ masthead, with the exception of a commencement speech at Wake Forest University where she told students that she was as unsure about her next move as they were. The Times’ publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., cited management issues as the cause for her dismissal.
