Marc Parry is a staff reporter at The Chronicle of Higher Education. He splits his time between covering technology and writing about research in the humanities and social sciences. His stories have explored the rise of online learning, a philosopher’s campaign against “Neurotrash,” a Facebook privacy meltdown at Harvard, Big Data approaches to studying literature, copyright policies that hobble teaching and research, and the tribal psychology of politics. He also writes for The Chronicle’s Wired Campus blog.
Parry joined The Chronicle in 2009. Before that, he covered higher education and religion for The Albany Times Union in Upstate New York (2005-9) and worked as a reporter at The Cape Cod Times (2003-5). His articles have also appeared in Newsday, The Chicago Tribune, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, National Catholic Reporter, The San Jose Mercury News, The Boulder Daily Camera, and The Toronto Star.
He earned a master’s degree in 2003 from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a bachelor’s in comparative literature in 1999 from the University of Michigan.
