About Seth Abramson

Seth is an attorney, professor, New York Times-bestselling author, Newsweek political columnist, editor, award-winning poet, cultural critic, and curatorial journalist who has authored eighteen books. He has been a culture columnist at Indiewire and the Huffington Post, teaches post-internet cultural theory at University of New Hampshire, and is one of the foremost American advocates of the cultural paradigm known as metamodernism—a subject on which he’s authored both popular and academic articles.

In 2017, Josh Meyer, then the Senior Investigative Reporter with Politico, called Seth “one hell of an investigative journalist.” Meyer’s assessment was shortly thereafter endorsed by the National Council for the Training of Journalists, which named Seth one of the “most respected” journalists in either the United States or United Kingdom—one of only nine freelancers in either nation so honored—for his political columns. Other 2018 NCTJ honorees included Pulitzer Prize winners Ronan Farrow and Bob Woodward and Emmy- and Murrow Award-winning reporter Christiane Amanpour.

A graduate of Dartmouth College, Harvard Law School, the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and the literary studies doctoral program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Seth has taught journalism at the University of New Hampshire since 2015 and been a working journalist since 1994—when he became a reporter, at the age of seventeen, for the oldest college newspaper in the United States, The Daily Dartmouth.
