I am interested in morality and ethics in organizational contexts. In one program of research, I study how humanizing organizations (thinking that organizations are similar to human beings) influences how people perceive and judge them. These include, for example, how people assign responsibility, empathize, and trust the organizations. In another area of research, I study how moral motivations, such as loyalty, influence people's attitudes and behaviors. Outside research, I like going to the theatre, such as musicals and plays, going to museums, exploring cities by doing restaurant crawls, hiking, running, going to classical concerts and going to comedy shows. I love playing the piano.

FELLOW
Independent Scholar

Noa Grass is working on the horse administration of Ming China. She has recently completed an article on frontier horse ranches in the early decades of the dynasty. During the time at the institute of advanced studies, she plans to work on temples to the horse god that were constructed near ranches both on the border and inland. Built and maintained by local official or military units, these temples were visited regularly by chief military officers that visited periodically to preside over rituals, and provided lodgings for officials that came to inspect the horses. They therefore served as a meeting point between local social and national administrative elements of the horse administration.

Prof. Bello's research focuses on the Qing Empire as a Human-Animal Construct. The Qing dynasty (1644-1912) governed a variety of ecologies and cultures across East Asia, Inner Asia and Southeast Asia. This required Qing environmental orchestration of human relations with livestock and game in Inner Asia, with insect herbivore predators and agricultural domesticates in East Asia and with insect disease vectors in Southeast Asia, to name only the major categories.

Prof. Ngo Minh Hien focuses on the manifestations of nature and nature symbolism in modern (mostly 20th century) Vietnamese literature. While working with the research group, she will explore human-animal relations in late colonial, Socialist and post-revolutionary Vietnamese literature and follow the changes and developments in these relations in different political and social contexts. Specifically, Hien will engage with domestic animals: water buffaloes, pigs, chicken, ducks, dogs and cats. These animals were, and still are, essential components of Vietnamese rural system, food culture, myth and religion.

Meir Shahar

FELLOW
Tel Aviv University

Prof. Shahar Meir is a historian of Chinese religion. He intends to focus upon the representations, roles, and attitudes towards animals in the Chinese religious tradition. Meir intends to pay special attention to the tutelary deities of draft animals, such as the Horse King (which protects horses, donkeys, and mules), the Ox King (which protects oxen and water buffaloes), and the Silkworm Goddess (which protects silkworms). These deities are widely worshiped by people whose livelihood depends upon their beastly protégés. Furthermore, human and animal tutelary deities are often worshiped side by side, indicating an existential affinity between draft animals and their human masters. Human and non-human animals are equally vulnerable and similarly in need of divine protection.
