She was a professor of journalism at New York University and also directed the journalism department’s cultural reporting and criticism program, which she founded in 1995. Her husband, Stanley Aronowitz, is a distinguished professor of sociology at the City University of New York and was the Green Party candidate for governor of New York in 2002.
