Kristin Graham

Lecturer in Podiatry, University of South Australia
I currently work as a teacher and researcher in the Allied Health and Human Performance unit at UniSA and hold an Adjunct Fellowship in the Discipline of Psychiatry at the University of Adelaide. My areas of experise span podiatry and psychology.

With over 25 years’ experience as a clinical podiatrist, in 2014 I decided to follow my passion of understanding what motivates human behaviour and completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science at Flinders University. I then recipieved the inaugural Rotary Health Australia ANZAC PhD Scholarship to complete a PhD at the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies, The University of Adelaide Medical School. My PhD explored the nexus between physical and mental health through exploring the impact of deployment traumatic experiences on physical and mental symptoms in deployed Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel. My passion is to explore creative ways to expand knowledge and understanding, challenge convention, and deliver impactful outcomes that make a real difference to people’s lives.

As a clinical podiatrist I have worked in a diverse range of settings including entrepreneurial business activities such as establishing the first locum podiatry service in South Australia as well as public, community, and private practice in urban and rural settings. I am still involved in private practice, which keeps me connected to contemporary issues in health practice. Good business acumen and clinical experience underpin my current role in the UniSA podiatry program.

My current research interests include:

· The impacts of deployment of Australian Defence Force personnel including: the overlap of physical and mental health symptoms; the association of health symptoms with suicide; and the impact of lifetime traumas on physiological dysregulation.

· The use of telehealth and virtual reqality to improve outcomes and access to services in diabetes related foot disease in rural, remote, and Aboriginal and Torres Straight communities.

· the impact of social determinants of health on foot ulcers and amputation rates in diabetes related foot disease.

· the impact of the health practitioner-patient relationship on patient behaviour and health outcomes.

· pharmacological endorsement and prescribing practices of podiatrists.

Kristin Ann Hass

Professor of American Culture, University of Michigan
Kristin Ann Hass is a Professor in the Department of American Culture and Faculty Coordinator of the Humanities Collaboratory at the University of Michigan. She lectures, teaches, and writes about nationalism, memory, publics, memorialization, militarization, race, visual culture, and material culture studies.

She has written three books. Blunt Instruments: Recognizing Racist Infrastructure in Memorials, Museums and Patriotic Practices helps readers to identify, classify and name elements of our everyday landscapes and cultural practices that are designed to seem benign or natural but which, in fact, work to maintain powerful structures of inequity. Sacrificing Soldiers on the National Mall is a study of militarism, race, war memorials and U.S. nationalism and Carried to the Wall: American Memory and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is an exploration of public memorial practices, material culture studies and the legacies of the Vietnam War.

Hass is also the editor of Being Human During COVID. Over the course of the pandemic, the questions that occupy the humanities—about grieving and publics, the social contract and individual rights, racial formation and xenophobia, ideas of home and conceptions of gender, narrative and representations and power—have become shared life-or-death questions about how human societies work and how culture determines our collective fate. The contributors in this collection draw on scholarly expertise and lived experience to try to make sense of the unfamiliar present.

Hass is also the faculty coordinator for the University of Michigan Humanities Collaboratory. The Humanities Collaboratory is a bold investment by the university in collaborative, multi-generational, inclusive, and transformational humanities scholarship that engages compelling questions for the academy and the world beyond. The Humanities Collaboratory gives singularly generous grants to support innovative and ambitious forms of humanities scholarship. Our mission is to give humanists access to significant resources to enable new kinds of work on the remarkable diversity of human experience across the globe.

She holds a Ph.D. in American studies and has worked in several historical museums, including the National Museum of American History. She was also the co-founder and Associate Director of Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life, a national consortium of educators and activists dedicated to campus-community collaborations.

I am an Assistant Professor of Conflict Management at Kennesaw State University’s School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding, and Development. As an anthropologist and scholar-practitioner, I specialize in genocide and mass atrocity prevention, emerging technologies and disinformation, post-conflict reconstruction, and war-related environmental degradation. A specialist in Ukraine and Russia, I have worked in 25+ countries including across Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, East Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean.

Supported by National Science Foundation, Fulbright, USAID, and other grants and fellowships, I am writing a book about the Ukraine-Russia war. This book discusses Joseph Stalin's historical genocide against Ukraine (the Holodomor) and how modern leaders interpreted this history to predict both Russia's modern genocidal war and Ukraine's stunning resistance. This book draws from more than 8 years of research on the Russia-Ukraine war, including 2.5 years of fieldwork across 32 Ukrainian cities and towns. My book is also based on my doctoral dissertation, which won the Kellogg Institute for International Studies Distinguished Dissertation in Democracy and Human Rights Award and was nominated for several other university and international awards.

I received my joint PhD in peace studies and anthropology from the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and Department of Anthropology. I hold M.A. degrees in anthropology (2019) and in international development (2012) from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies respectively. My B.A. in anthropology is from the University of Florida, where I graduated as a valedictorian.

Prior to my time in academia, I served as a policy advisor at the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations and as a political/economic officer in an embassy abroad.

I have also held leaderships roles at several international development and conflict resolution non-governmental organizations (NGOs). At George Mason University's Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, I served as the inaugural Executive Director of the Better Evidence Project which bridges gaps in policy, research, practice, and donors in the war prevention field. In 2017, I was recognized with the Society for Applied Anthropology's Human Rights Defender Award.

Presently, I am a non-resident fellow at the Marine Corps University's Krulak Center for Innovation and Future Warfare. I regularly consult with government, multilateral, and human rights organizations.
