Adam R. Rosenblatt, Associate Professor of the Practice

Adam R. Rosenblatt

Adam Rosenblatt is Associate Professor of the Practice in International Comparative Studies at Duke University. A scholar of human rights, the ethics of care, and our ties to the dead, he is the author of Digging for the Disappeared: Forensic Science after Atrocity (Stanford University Press, 2015). His forthcoming book, Cemetery Citizens, is an ethnography of grassroots groups working to preserve and honor places of the marginalized dead. The book focuses on race and disability through ongoing work in African American burial grounds and former psychiatric hospital cemeteries. In Durham, he serves on the board of the Friends of Geer Cemetery, teaches community-engaged courses, and is the co-founder of the Durham Black Burial Grounds Collaboratory, an academic-community-cemetery partnership funded by the Duke Endowment.
