  • An April 8, 2010 article by Jennifer Epstein in the online periodical Inside Higher Ed focused on a conference hosted at Wagner College by psychology professor Miles Groth on April 7 to explore “a new academic discipline focusing on male studies at the university level.” The story was highlighted in IHE’s monthly roundup as one of the top three most commented upon stories — 85 at the last count. This event was the most written about activity on the Wagner College campus in years, bar none; 26 stories were posted following the April 7 event on the websites of such periodicals and blogs as the Huffington Post, the Washington Post, Forbes, the National Post (Canada), Salon.com, Fox News, the Calgary Herald, The Dartmouth, Mother Jones and Times Higher Education. The Inside Higher Ed piece is a good representative of the massive coverage, as are the comments posted at the end of the story.
