“This will become Malcolm’s professional preoccupation: not ‘what really happened’ but how and by whom the story of what happened is worked out—whether at trial, in biography, in therapy, or in the practice of journalism itself—and how that story is worked into what we might call the conventional wisdom.”

Teaching Professor and Director of the Writing Minor Sebastian Stockman has published “Freud, Facts, and Folly,” a consideration of journalist Janet Malcolm’s work, its relationship to psychoanalysis, and her unique position in the history of New Journalism, in the literary magazine Majuscule.
