Maura Monaghan


My name is Maura Monaghan, and I'm a senior at Boston College studying Political Science and English. I've just returned from spending the fall 2018 semester at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland's capital city, where I covered news and culture for The Student, a newspaper on campus. This past summer, I covered local area news and politics at the Rockland County Times, a daily digital and weekly print paper in southern New York State. I also wrote about arts and culture in and around New York City for Musée Magazine. I spent the spring of 2018 interning at Woman and Home magazine in London, where I covered lifestyle and health and wellness stories. At Boston College, I write for the metro section of The Heights, our independent student newspaper, and cover news and events both on campus and in Greater Boston.

Has modern technology changed the way we read?

Whatever your reasons may be - convenience, saving money, one-upping your friends in an egomaniacal battle to save the earth - chances are you have gone digital.
