Weschler has actually taught, variously, at Princeton, Columbia, UCSC, Bard, Vassar, Sarah Lawrence, and NYU, where he is now identified writer in house at the Carter Journalism Institute.

He just recently graduated to director emeritus of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, where he has been a fellow given that 1991 and was director from 2001-2013, and from which base he had aimed to start his own semiannual journal of composing and visual culture, Omnivore. He is likewise the creative director emeritus, still actively engaged, with the Chicago Liberal Arts Festival, and manager for New york city Live Ideas, a yearly body-based liberal arts collaboration with Expense T. Jones and his NY Live Arts.

The author is a phony and a hypocrite.”
