Dr. McDonald explains the need for caregiver writing

Driven by the belief that humanities scholarship can have a positive public impact, Dr. Kathlene McDonald works consistently to “share the story.” Teaching courses on autobiography writing, literature and medicine, and care work; the goal is far greater than teaching within the classroom. Professor McDonald is directly involved in the Center for the Humanities “Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research” at the Graduate Center, CUNY, with support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Seminar brings together faculty, students, and community partners to produce and circulate research through public projects at CUNY and throughout New York City.  Believing that scholarship is not merely classroom-based but expands into the larger community, she has also developed a writing program for family and paid caregivers to share their stories.
