HAS Fellowship Program 2009
The Animals & Society Institute is happy to announce the 2009 fellows in Human-Animal Studies. In the summer of 2009, this interdisciplinary program will enable 6 fellows to pursue research in residence at Duke University. Host faculty at Duke will be Kathy Rudy, Associate Professor in Women's Studies and Ethics, and Marilyn Forbes, Senior Lecturing Fellow at the Duke University School of Law. This location allows fellows access to the nearby Tom Regan Animal Rights Archive at NCSU.
The fellowship is designed to support recipients' individual research through mentorship, guest lectures, and scholarly exchange among fellows and opportunities to contribute to the intellectual life of the host institution.
