Katherine Hite's recent work focuses on the politics of memory, as well as issues in higher education, access and equity. Her research has been supported by the Fulbright Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, and the Ford Foundation. She received her B.A. from Duke University and her Masters in International Affairs and Ph.D. in political science from Columbia University. 

The Davis Community Human Rights Lectures bring to the university and the community distinguished scholars and practitioners in the fields of human rights, humanitarianism and genocide studies. Visiting speakers spend time with UC Davis undergraduates and graduate students who take courses and seminars in the university’s expanding offerings in Human Rights Studies, then give a talk at the I-House for members of the Davis community.
