Linda Lucia Lubrano
School of International Service
- Linda Lucia Lubrano retired from the SIS faculty after 45 years of teaching from 1968 to 2013. Honored for her distinguished teaching career, she offered a wide range of courses that bridged the humanities with the natural and social sciences. Her classes often drew upon film, literature, and philosophy, for example, and combined political theory with the comparative study of science and technology. The breadth of her research scholarship included the politics and sociology of science, the anthropology of medical practice, and the political theorization of social enterprise. An integrating theme in her work was her emphasis on ideas and practices that both inhibit and liberate individuals in their search for identity and self-governance. She brought this theme into her teaching on civil society, markets and the Russian state, her honors course on engineering the human condition, and her graduate course on theories of comparative and international studies.
