Cody Chun is a PhD candidate in English at Stanford University. He studies contemporary U.S. literature (with a focus on multiethnic fiction), literature and philosophy, and race and ethnicity. His current research explores how experimental form in contemporary U.S. literature structures and facilitates ethical thinking.
Elias Aceves is currently an undergraduate at Stanford, hoping to double major in Economics and Mathematics. Poverty, disparity, and development studies have always been at the forefront of his mind. He is interested in addressing such issues, along with incorporating methodologies which are not common in economics. Whether it is looking to incorporate neocolonial history to the Global South’s underdevelopment, or how race, gender, and sexuality influence one’s class and their mobility, Elias has always sought to address inequities discussed within economics through more ways than time series, regressions, and models (but he doesn’t mind doing that either!). In his free time, he likes to run, paint, or watch A24 Movies.
