Her writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, TIME, and other publications. Emily is an instructor in positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and a columnist for The New Criterion, as well as an editor at the Stanford University's Hoover Institution, where she manages the Ben Franklin Circles project, a collaboration with the 92nd Street Y and Citizen University to build meaning in local communities. http://emilyesfahanismith.com/
