Julianne McShane is a journalist and a 2017 graduate of New York University, where she majored in Global Liberal Studies with a concentration in Contemporary Culture and Creative Production and spent her full third year studying abroad in Paris. Since graduating NYU, Julianne has worked as a local journalist, covering seven neighborhoods in southern Brooklyn for The Brooklyn Paper. She is also a freelance reporter for The New York Times and The Guardian, where she has written stories on historic and modern-day manifestations of gendered and racial inequalities.
