Here's a word from Professor Schulman about what she's up to at the moment:

As of October 28, 2017 I am preparing a new novel, Maggie Terry, to be published by The Feminist Press in September 2018, I am co-convening the City of New York HIV/AIDS Studies Program, which will inaugurate a conference on HIV/AIDS Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences on March 19, 2018. I am collaborating with the singer Marianne Faithful on a stage musical using her songs, I am on the advisory board of Jewish Voice for Peace, and also on Claudia Rankine's Racial Imaginary Institute--preparing our Biennial for Spring 2018. I am working on a musical adaptation of my 1998 novel Shimmer, with lyricist Michael Korie and composer Anthony Davis, and a number of other plays, books, films and associated projects.
