USC In the News 6/28/2017

Chicago Tribune featured Percival Everett of the USC Dornsife College and his novel, "So Much Blue." Everett's range as an author, from short fiction and poetry to novels, is celebrated. The reviewer makes the case for Everett to be recognized as a "Great American Novelist" alongside other authors like John Updike and Jonathan Franzen. "When Updike was working with this material, somehow it reflected the 'world we live in.' If that was true of Updike, it's doubly true of Everett, who is a far superior observer of the world," the reviewer wrote.

Times Higher Education featured research by Daniela Glaser of the USC Viterbi School and colleagues finding that female candidates for jobs within academic engineering departments are interrupted more frequently than male candidates.
