Donald N.S. Unger, MFA, PhD
I currently teach in the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) division of the Program in Writing & Humanistic Studies at MIT; write about the representation of men, masculinity, and fatherhood in popular culture; do business journalism for Knowledge@Wharton and its affiliated sites; have a (dormant) blog on environmental issues.
My book “Men Can: The Changing Image & Reality of Fatherhood in America,” was published by Temple University Press in June of 2010. I also have a (self-published) collection of (previously published) short fiction, Brokenhearted Ironies.
Nonfiction work has appeared in The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Village Voice; radio commentary has aired on NPR affiliates in Amherst and Albany; short fiction has been published in the US, Canada and Europe. I’ve published a poem or two as well.
Scholarly interests in Composition/Rhetoric include questions of mutual assessment in the writing classroom.
