Experts tally unprecedented appearances in ‘New York Times’
If you think you’ve been reading more quotes from Temple faculty members lately in The New York Times, one of the nation’s largest and most widely read news media outlets, you’re right.
Temple faculty scholars have been joining the national discussion in the pages of the Times at an unprecedented rate, sharing their analysis on a broad range of issues: the presidential election, international relations, criminal justice, student debt, human behavior and more. In the last two months alone, Temple scholars, research and programs have been included in Times stories at least 10 times. Since the 2016-17 academic year started, the total of Times mentions is more than 25, thought to be an all-time high (it would be even higher if one included all the national wire stories from the Associated Press or Reuters that have been picked up by the Times).
Two College of Education faculty members have been recently mentioned in the Times:
- Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, Professor of Higher Education, was quoted in stories about the presidential candidates’ plans on student debt and the cost of off-campus housing.
- Dr. Frank Farley, Professor of Educational Psychology, explained why people enjoy fear and reflected on the legacy of television psychologist Joy Browne in an obituary.
- Hillel Hoffmann
