Fired New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson will start teaching journalism at Harvard University this fall, according to a press release from the Ivy League college.

“Harvard is delighted to welcome Jill Abramson to the English Department, where her students in the Writing Program will profit enormously from her insights, experience and brilliance,” said Diana Sorensen, Harvard’s dean of arts and humanities.

Abramson will assume the title of “visiting lecturer” for the 2014-2015 academic year.

“I'm honored and excited to be teaching at Harvard in the coming academic year,” Abramson said. “Narrative non-fiction journalism is more important than ever. Its traditions and how it is changing in the digital transition are fascinating areas of study."

Abramson graduated from Harvard in 1976 and has previously taught journalism at Yale and Princeton.
