Congratulations to RSEA alumna Rong Huang (AM'16) on being selected as an Ethics Pedagogy Fellow at Harvard University for next academic year.
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics announced its post-doctoral and graduate fellowship awards on April 15. Rong Huang is one of four current PhD students, from different Harvard schools and discplines, to be named as Ethics Pedagogy Fellows. The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics wrote this about Rong Huang's work and fellowship opportunity:
"Rong Huang is a PhD student from the Committee on the Study of Religion at Harvard, with a focus on the field of comparative religion. Her research deals with the interaction between East Syriac Christianity and medieval Chinese religions (Confucianism, Buddhism, and Daoism) during the Tang dynasty (618-907A.D.). As a PhD student whose research includes a lot of theories about ethics, she hopes to engage in lively discussions at the Center with those who study and teach in professional schools, gain knowledge of current ways of practicing ethics, and learn how to better apply the ethical insights she has obtained from the theorists to real-world problems. Meanwhile, as one of the Ethics Pedagogy Fellows for the 2020-2021 academic year, her solid academic training and abundant teaching experiences will contribute to the diversity of methods and disciplines on which the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics draws, and the range of social and intellectual purposes the Center serves."
