The Project

How do different disciplines define what is human as opposed to what is a thing? And how can bringing together several investigations across those disciplines generate new ideas and questions about what it means to be human?

The public events in Ambiguously Human invite you to explore these questions. This project features an installation in the Nasher Museum of Art, a film series around campus, and a project blog. Be sure to check the calendar for events you can attend. If you’re interested, read more about this project and its influences.

Ambiguously Human is Kati Henderson’s master’s project with Duke’s Graduate Liberal Studies department, where she’s creating a program of study on interdisciplinary public engagement. She would love to hear what you think about Ambiguously Human! Email or talk to her at any of the project events.

There are no more events. The project analysis is available on the blog. This website will remain active as long as possible.

Thank you all for making it work in ways I couldn’t have foreseen!
