    My undergrad major was French Literature, with minors in Art History and Anthropology at Rutgers University. There I also did graduate work in Art History. My MA in Teaching English as a Second Language is from Hunter College, and I've been teaching it at all levels for a few decades, to various populations in New York. I also did a stint as Assistant Editor of RES: Anthropology and Aesthetics, which is an academic journal sponsored by the Peabody Museum at Harvard.
