The Labor of Care Archive was founded by Kathy McDonald, an Associate Professor of English in the Department of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the City College of New York Center for Worker Education/CUNY.  Her published work, including Feminism the Left, and Postwar Literary Culture (UP Mississippi 2012), focuses on class, culture, politics, and movement building in twentieth-century United States literature. She serves as a mentor and writing group facilitator for family caregivers at Visible Ink at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Her current research studies the intersection of medicine, literature, and writing, particularly the relationship between personal narratives, end-of-life care, and public policy advocacy.  Click here to see her speak about the need for caregiver writing:
