Earlier this summer, DePaul named Rebecca Feinberg, a teaching assistant professor of health sciences, and Michael Naas, a professor of philosophy, as the recipients of the Institute for Business and Professional Ethics' 2020-21 Wicklander Fellowship.
Feinberg's research focuses on resource allocation in the developing world, with an emphasis on preventive care. She will use her fellowship funds on her Wicklander project, “Out of the Freezer and into the Policy Fire: Ethical Quandaries in Gamete and Embryo Cryopreservation."
Naas conducts research in ancient Greek and contemporary French philosophy. He has several published works and is the co-editor of The Oxford Literary Review. Naas' Wicklander project is titled, “The Day the World Stopped Working: Jacques Derrida, Jeremy Rifkin, and the Future of Work."
The Wicklander Fellowship is awarded annually to two full-time faculty members who demonstrate an interest in applied or professional ethics as these topics relate to their field of research. The fellowship pays awardees a $5,000 stipend paid over the course of the academic year and a $2,000 summer stipend, as well as a professional development fund.
Founded in 1985, DePaul's Institute for Business and Professional Ethics facilitates ethical deliberation in decision-makers by stirring their moral conscience, encouraging moral imagination and stimulating research in business innovation and practices. It serves as a forum for exploring and fostering ethical practices in business and the professions particularly aimed at students, faculty, business professionals and the Chicago community.
