Congratulations to junior NELC concentrator Nancy Ko on being named one of only 13 Edmond J. Safra Undergraduate Fellows in Ethics for 2015-16!
Nancy is interested in the ethics of historiography, particularly the dialectic between language, evidence, and power. She has traveled to Asia and the Middle East, and her academic interests extend from medieval European Jewish history to the modern Levant. She is the Senior Books and Arts Editor at the Harvard Political Review.
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, established in 1986, is one of Harvard University's interfaculty initiatives under the auspices of the Provost's Office. It encourages teaching and research about ethical issues in public life and the professions, and helps meet the growing need for teachers and scholars who address questions of moral choice in practical ethics and in areas such as architecture, business, education, government, journalism, law, medicine, public health and public policy. In addition to the fellowships, the Center sponsors a public lecture series on applied and professional ethics and other events throughout the year.
