EMBODIMENT, ETHICS, RE/PRODUCTION & THE LIFECOURSE
Thursday 5th June 2014, 10-4pm
University of Edinburgh
This one day event provides a forum for discussion, debate and deliberation around a series of presentations relating to re/production, ethics and embodiment. The symposium will seek to interrogate the extent to which ethical engagement can enhance theoretical work on embodiment; and the extent to which theories of embodiment can contribute to bioethics.
- Dr Sarah Chan: Embodiment and enhancement: normativity vs subjectivity in enhancement ethics
- Professor Elizabeth Ettorre: Biopolitics, reproductive genetics and gender: what’s embodied ethics got to do with it?
- Dr Gill Haddow: Do cyborgs feel? The need for an embodiment epistemology
- Professor Anne Kerr: Embodiment, emotion and biomedical innovation
- Dr Fadhila Mazanderani: ‘It’s my body’: ethics, experience and expertise in controversial medical theories and treatments
- PROFESSOR JACKIE LEACH SCULLY: BIONIC BETTERMENT: THE RIGHT KIND OF DISABLED BODY?
This event is being hosted by Professor Sarah Cunningham-Burley and Dr Amy Chandler, at the University of Edinburgh, as part of the Wellcome Trust funded Strategic Award in Bioethics: The Human Body, its Scope, Limits and Future (PI John Harris, University of Manchester).
