Hanna Rosin

Acclaimed author Hanna Rosin visits Youngstown State University at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the Chestnut Room of Kilcawley Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Rosin is a senior editor at Atlantic magazine and a founder and co-editor of DoubleX, Slate‘s women’s section. She covered politics and religion for the Washington Post for many years, and she has written for the New Yorker, The New York Times, GQ and The New Republic, among other publications. In 2009 she was nominated for a National Magazine Award for her Atlantic story about transgendered children, “A Boy’s Life.” In 2010 she won an award as part of a package of stories on circumcision in New York magazine. Her stories have also been included in Best American Magazine Writing and Best American Crime Reporting.

Rosin’s most recent book, The End of Men: And the Rise of Women, grew out of her 2010 cover story for the Atlantic, “The End of Men,” which sparked a national conversation and led to appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, Today, and a keynote address at the first TED national women’s conference in December 2011. Rosin’s previous book, God’s Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America was published by Harcourt in 2007.

Rosin lives in Washington, DC, with her husband, Slate editor David Plotz, and their three children.

This event is sponsored by the YSU Women’s Studies Program, Dr. James Dale Ethics Center, Center for Judaic and Holocaust Studies, Department of Sociology, Department of Communication, and the YSU chapter of Women in Communication.
