Summer Fellows tackle the American-Korean culture of adoption, Greenland’s rights and resources

Our far-flung Kenan Summer Fellows Cece Mercer and Christine Delp have written their first reflection journals for their summer projects exploring what it means to “live an ethical life.”  Be sure to read these and continued posts through the summer on the KSF journal page.

Together with a faculty mentor, the two undergraduates formulated projects that incorporate research and personal reflection. Cece is a Korean adoptee exploring the culture of adoption, both through interviewing other adoptees in the U.S. and through traveling to Korea to understand how the adoption process is viewed from the other side. Christine will be in Greenland, exploring the ways in which changing environmental and economic climates are affecting the lives of indigenous Inuit communities.
