Kenan Graduate Fellows Fall Research Workshop

December 10, 2018

Due to the inclimate weather closing of Duke on December 10th, this workshop will be rescheduled for early 2019. Please check this page for the revised date, time and location.


You are invited to the Kenan Graduate Fellows fall research workshop on Monday, December 10 from 2:00-5:30PM in the Blue Parlor, first floor East Duke Building (across the street from KIE).

We will have two panel discussions, with four presenters on each panel. The topics of each panel have been clustered around some common themes:

  • Panel 1: The ethics of interactions between human and non-human (environment and animals) and the role of cognition. Featuring Sarah Zigler (Marine Science), Bryce Gessell (Philosophy), Wen Zhou (Evolutionary Anthropology), and Angela Bischof (Philosophy)
  • Panel 2: How people navigate social and political institutions through formal and informal barriers. Featuring Emily Dubie (Graduate Program in Religion), Zimife Umeh (Sociology), Hannah Borenstein (Cultural Anthropology), and Karen Little (English)
Each panel will run for about 90 minutes, beginning with 6-8 minute “TEDx”-style presentations from each panelist, followed by wide-open discussion involving panelists and the audience, and with the aim of making connections among the different strands of research and delving into the practical and normative challenges they raise.
