Moisés Kaufman and Amanda Gronich of Tectonic Theater Project
Moisés and Amanda’s groundbreaking theatrical storytelling thrives at the intersection of the personal and the political. Inspired by true events and using first hand accounts and original research, their work explores the line between complacency, complicity, and culpability. Tectonic's plays, including The Laramie Project and their newest play, Here There are Blueberries, have engaged audiences around the world in a rigorous search for truth.
Moises and Amanda’s visionary theatrical storytelling explores human behavior, even the worst of it, asking us to dive deeper into our own motivations. With a rigorous search for truth, and empathic documentary lens, their groundbreaking works challenge us all to consider our actions, and ask why we do what we do.
Shannon Prince, FASPE Law '16
DISTINGUISHED FELLOW AWARD
Dr. Shannon Prince (FASPE Law '16) is an attorney at Boies Schiller Flexner. Shannon is the author of Tactics for Racial Justice: Building an Antiracist Organization and Community, a television legal commentator, and a litigator who recently helped lead the Cherokee Nation’s lawsuit against the opioid industry. She holds a PhD in African and African American Studies and an AM in English from Harvard University Graduate School of Arts and Science as well as a JD from Yale Law School.
Shannon embodies the broad role of ethics in the law: she is a humanist—a PhD in the humanities, a writer of fiction and non-fiction; a communicator/leader—frequently commenting in the media empathetic in her legal practice—engaged in complex litigation, but also employing her expertise in federal Indian law, policing policy, and restorative justice.
Thomas P. Duffy, MD
Pillar of the faculty of Yale School of Medicine for 46 years, Tom used his passion for the arts to lead the Program for Humanities. This enrichment Program created offerings in arts and humanities to complement the science components of the YSM curriculum, thus enriching the medical school experience. Tom was a national thought leader in the field of bioethics, bringing his knowledge, empathy and insights as a passionate educator.
Tom, the consummate diagnostician, taught generations of doctors the role of humanism and grace in medicine. His legacy is one of the confluence of empathy and story-telling and story-listening in the doctor/patient relationship. Tom never lost sight of the soul in treating the body.
