New Criticals


"My first daily media date is with a current writing project via Dropbox (used with a text editing app). I can access Dropbox from any of my devices--whatever is close at hand, from smartphone to desktop computer—so I never have an excuse for not writing. Most days this involves putting the final touches on my book, “The Social Life of DNA,” which will be published by Beacon Press in 2014. Today, I revised a section of the book, wrote up my First 5, and drafted some notes for a new project on African American women in the sciences."
