The Weekly Observer

Identifier: NS-05-10-01

Content Description

A publication issued by the New School's Communications and External Affairs office, general announcements about events, appointments, accomplishments, and other news from across The New School, of a print publication of the same or similar title that itself later migrated to electronic form as an email blast to the New School community, and was finally posted onto The New School website. [TO BE CONFIRMED WHETHER THE PRINT PUBLICATION, NEW SCHOOL OBSERVER, WHICH APPEARS TO RUN THROUGH 1999, DUPLICATES OR IS DIFFERENT FROM THE ELECTRONIC VERSION BETWEEN 1997 AND 1999]

The last electronic file in Ted Barber's files is November 19, 2007; the web archive harvested here begins on January 14, 2008.

The Weekly Observer was succeeded by the blog, The New School News, which first appeared online on September 2, 2010, and is still in publication as of May 2024.

"Welcome to The New School News—your indispensable source for updates, events, and in-depth features on students and faculty. Replacing the Weekly Observer, this blog will give you the inside track on the latest and most vital news from across the university, in text, pictures, and video. From public programs to faculty profiles, from exhibitions to new research, if it's at The New School, it's in the News.

News comes to you in two ways. Every two weeks, you will receive an e-mail from Communications and External Affairs highlighting features from the blog. And, to stay even more up-to-the-minute, check in for regular updates here."
