About

Ethics, embodiment, re/production and the lifecourse is a one day symposium, hosted by the University of Edinburgh, and held as part of the Wellcome Trust strategic award – The Human Body, its scope, limits and future

The symposium will provide a forum for discussion, debate and deliberation on ethics, embodiment and production/reproduction of bodies across the lifecourse.

Themed sessions will explore these issues from different perspectives via presentations addressing the following areas: enhancement; reproductive technologies; disability; fertility; prosthetics; ‘every day’ technologies.

A key aim of the day is to interrogate the extent to which ethical engagement with such issues can enhance theoretical work on embodiment; and the extent to which theories of embodiment can contribute to bioethics.

Date and time: Thursday 5th June 2014, 10am-4pm

Location: University of Edinburgh

Organised by: Professor Sarah Cunningham-Burley, Dr Amy Chandler
