Wald is an Associate Professor at Duke University who
teaches and works on U.S. literature and culture, particularly
literature of the late-18th to mid-20th centuries. She focuses
especially on the intersections among the law, literature, science
and medicine, and she is interested in how collaborations among
scholars from these fields can facilitate a greater understanding
of genome science. She is currently completing two projects; one
on the idea of emerging infections and the evolution of the outbreak
narrative in science, journalism, fiction and film; and the other
on genomics, especially how the language, narratives and images
in the popular media shape the general public’s understanding
of the science.
Goldberg-Hiller is Associate Professor and Chairman of the Department
of Political Sciences at the University of Hawaii. He investigates
contemporary political and social phenomena to study how changing
forms of identity, nationalism, political authority and political
economy affect the mobilization of rights, how these rights are
resisted, and how they retain relevancy. He is the author of The
Limits to Union: Same-Sex Marriage and the Politics of Civil Rights
(University of Michigan Press, 2002).
Milner is Professor of Political Science at the University of Hawai'i
where he is affiliated with the Program on Conflict Resolution.
His teaching interests focus on pubic policy, health policy, and
especially on the role of law in political and social life. He
has written books about police, community conflict, and mediation,
and has just completed editing a book of essays called The Tapestries
of Rights. He has written a variety of articles that mostly have
considered the following questions: Under what circumstances do
people claim they have rights and what are the consequences of
this claim? What does it mean to own property? Do forms of conflict
resolution bring about social transformation? He has also written
about his own family's immigrant experiences.
