By SP Staff

ScheerPost is bringing back Larry’s List, a daily news curation from USC communications professor Larry Gross, to keep you up to date with the most cutting edge news and analysis of our time. A specialist in media and culture, art and communication, visual communication and media portrayals of minorities, Gross helped found the field of gay and lesbian studies and is retiring this year after fifty five years of teaching.

On Larry’s List today — a top UN official steps down, citing UN complicity in genocide of Palestinian civilians in Gaza; an open-access proposal that would revolutionize science publishing; an argument against the Right’s attack on Social Security benefits; VCs question university investments following on-campus protests over the war in Gaza, and more.
