Ashlyn Nuckols (class of 2018) is from Burlington, Vermont, and is pursuing degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Political Science, with a focus on Politics and Social Identity. Ashlyn serves as president of the Duke chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops and is involved in labor organizing on and off campus. She is also a founding member of The Cook Center Media Workshop, a student-led group that produces film and media related to social justice issues in North Carolina. Ashlyn frequently works on freelance video projects and occasionally contributes articles to The Chronicle and Duke Political Review. For her summer project, Ashlyn is working with Durham For All, a nonprofit that strives to mobilize working class and people of color communities for progressive causes, to examine the factors affecting political participation among low-income Durham residents, particularly staff members at Duke. Her research will help inform her senior thesis on social identity and community organizing in Durham, North Carolina.
