Talk • From Russian Studies to Donkey Rescue

March 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Robin Bisha, Ph.D., is on sabbatical from her position as Professor of Communication at Texas Lutheran University to research communication between humans and non-humans as a component of interspecies spirituality. She began her academic career with graduate work in Russian Studies at Indiana University and taught Russian Studies at Kalamazoo College and the University of Texas at El Paso before redirecting her academic work toward mass communication at University of North Carolina. Bisha lives at Cheshire’s Legacy sanctuary farm in Kingsbury, Texas, with three donkeys, a mule, a miniature horse, a dozen cats, birds, opossums, raccoons, armadillos, transient deer, an occasional coyote, seasonal frogs, lots of insects, and more plants than she can keep track of.

Please note, this event is taking place at Duke University and is presented by the Slavic and Eurasian Studies Department at Duke. Please contact Jehanne Gheith <> with any questions about the event.
