Associate Professor of the Practice

Adam Rosenblatt researches at the intersections of human rights, social justice, and care of the dead. Before coming to Duke, he was the Assistant Dean for Global Engagement at Champlain College and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Peace, Justice, and Human Rights at Haverford College. His first book, Digging for the Disappeared: Forensic Science after Atrocity (Stanford University Press, 2015), explored how scientific experts exhuming mass graves interact with international institutions, grieving families and their dead loved ones. His next book is about citizen groups who labor to reclaim spaces of the marginalized dead, including African-American burial grounds and mental asylum cemeteries. He lives with his partner, Amanda Levinson, who is co-founder of the refugee- and disaster-aid startup NeedsList.co, and his two children, Leo and Sal.
