CHARLOTTE KENT recently completed her PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center, where her dissertation was on contemporary experiments in art writing. She teaches at NYU, CUNY Baruch, and SVA. She lives in Brooklyn with her artist husband, their cat and dog, and is happiest reading, writing, and editing. The rest of the time, it seems like she is on email, but when the lights go out, she loves to dance.
