Alumni Update: Carmen Crow Sheehan (MHCE 6)

Chasing Misery: An Anthology of Essays By Women in Humanitarian Responses

“International Women’s Day – March 8, 2014 – marked the official launch of Chasing Misery, an anthology of 21 essays and 26 photographs contributed by women who have worked in humanitarian responses during the last decade. All of the essays are first person accounts of specific experiences women had which challenged or inspired them. It has been my honor to contribute – both as an editor and author/photographer – to this work, which provides a deeper insight into the complex world of humanitarian responses through the eyes of those on the front lines.” Carmen Crow Sheehan (MHCE 6)
