Some of the rich contributions to research at the Kettering Foundation come from the many visitors and residents who stay at the foundation for short periods of time and work on ideas related to the research of the foundation, but considered through their own lenses of practice and place. Collected Essays gathers excerpts or adaptations of reports on research projects conducted by some of Kettering’s international fellows during their stay at the foundation. The subjects are as varied and far-flung as the fellows themselves, who are from Zimbabwe, Colombia, Brazil, China, Russia, and New Zealand. These essays reflect the learning that grew out of their stay and their research in their home countries. They are intended, among other things, to provide ideas, guidance, and inspiration for those who come after them. Chapters in this volume include:
