Bernadette McCauley



Ph.D., Columbia University

Bernadette McCauley teaches the first half of the U.S. survey, and undergraduate and graduate courses in immigration history and the history of medicine and social welfare. She is a longtime member of the Thomas Hunter Faculty Council and also teaches in the program, and is currently president of the Hunter College Faculty Delegate Assembly. She graduated from Hunter College where she majored in history, received her PhD at Columbia University and was a post doctoral fellow at the Center for American Religion at Princeton. She has been involved in numerous public history projects in New York City and tries to incorporate the city’s historical resources into all of her courses.

Her research focuses on the history of women religious and the history of caretaking and medicine. Her book on New York’s Catholic hospitals, Who Shall Take Care of Our Sick (Johns Hopkins, 2005) examined how women religious were influential in hospital development in New York. She has also written more generally on the history of American healthcare and the history of Catholicism. Her current research examines the spirituality of American Catholic women in the early twentieth century and the paths that brought women to the religious life through the 1960’s.

She and her husband live in Greenwich Village with their cat and dog, She reads lots of novels and attempts to grow tomatoes every summer on Cape Cod.
