Dr. Kirschner’s career has been a rich mix of the academic and business world and of traditional and nontraditional media. She is the University Dean of the Macaulay Honors College of the City University of New York and author of SALA’S GIFT, the story of her mother’s wartime rescue of letters from Nazi labor camps. She began her career as a lecturer in Victorian literature at Princeton University, where she earned a Ph.D. in English. Her subsequent career as an entrepreneur in media and technology included the creation of businesses in cable and satellite television as well as online businesses for the National Football League and Columbia University. A frequent contributor to conferences and publications on higher education and interactive media, Ann Kirschner was named one of New York Magazine’s “Millennium New Yorkers” and honored as a distinguished graduate of Princeton University. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Topps Company, the Jewish Women's Archive, and MOUSE. Sala's Gift is a rare and unforgettable primary source account of one Jewish family's WWII experience, set within the larger historical context of the little-known Nazi labor camp system.
