BOSTON - Ousted New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson will teach at Harvard University in the next academic year, specializing in narrative non-fiction, the Ivy League college said on Thursday.



Abramson was fired last month by publisher Arthur Sulzberger in a shock move that triggered accusations of sexism and management shortfalls at the storied newspaper.



"Narrative non-fiction journalism is more important than ever," said Abramson, who the university said would teach undergraduates in the fall and spring semesters. "Its traditions and how it is changing in the digital transition are fascinating areas of study."



Abramson, who joined the Times in 1997 after a nine-year stint at the Wall Street Journal, served as the paper's top editor for two-and-a-half years. She is a Harvard alumna.
