"Science and society have influenced and have been influenced by the creation, reproduction and maintenance of racial hierarchies." That is the catalyst behind the creative programming for the Race, Genomics and Society course at Duke, taught by Robert O. Keohane Professor Charmaine Royal of African & African American Studies and Biology. Students in the course helped to translate the findings of scientific research into music, spoken word, dramatic skits and dance.
The Trinity Curriculum Development Committee is committed to reviewing the structure and content of the curriculum that governs much of undergraduate education at Duke andproposing changes that speak to the interests and needs of our students in the coming decades.
During Duke's centennial year, the university celebrates the impactful research of faculty members like Anna Gassman-Pines, professor of public policy and psychology and neuroscience, and Felipe De Brigard, associate professor of philosophy.
