Brett McCarty

is a Th.D. candidate in theology and ethics at Duke Divinity School. His focus is in bioethics, and his current research project investigates moral formation in the hospital, attending to the ways in which medical practitioners are shaped within modern medicine. By analyzing the differing social imaginaries displayed in treatments of the body within paradigmatic medical spaces, he aims to offer more thoroughgoing accounts of the fundamental moral issues encountered in modern medicine, and so enable better understandings of the conditions and possibilities of faithful moral agency for medical practitioners. He also completed his MDiv at Duke, and he went to Furman University as an undergraduate, where he majored in Religion and Mathematics-Economics.
