Duke Today: Susan Kauffman, Office of Undergraduate Education
Six Duke professors who have demonstrated excellence both in research and undergraduate education have been selected as the 2021 Bass Fellows.
Harris Solomon, Fred W. Shaffer Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology and Global Health, effective July 1, 2021
An award-winning medical anthropologist, Solomon holds appointments in the Department of Cultural Anthropology and the Duke Global Health Institute. His undergraduate courses address the social dimensions of medicine and health, and he also teaches CA 101, Introduction to Cultural Anthropology. As many of his students embark on health careers, his courses invite students to reflect on the complex ties between public health, medicine, and social inequality that ground his research in India and the United States. Solomon was a recipient of the Robert B. Cox Teaching Award in Trinity College and is among the top 5% of Trinity instructors based on teaching evaluations.
