Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference

19/05/2015 - 22/05/2015
All Day


Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology – The University of Texas at Dallas, Richardson Texas

Science, technology, and medicine unquestionably have a major impact on our lives. We live with constant technological innovation and scientific discovery, and this changes the conditions that we live in, as well as the way we understand ourselves and the world around us. Science, technology, and medicine are thus entangled with our values, our culture, and our politics, and they have an important impact on policymaking and action. The Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference will explore these themes through a variety of disciplinary approaches, including history and philosophy, bioethics and applied ethics, social studies, policy studies, literary & cultural studies, and new media studies, as well as interdisciplinary approaches.

This year’s conference will focus on three key themes: (1) Gender in Science, Technology, and Medicine, (2) Paul Feyerabend on Science, Values, and Politics – In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the publication of Against Method, and (3) Legitimate and Illegitimate Roles for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology

SRPoiSE Second Annual Meeting

27/03/2015 - 28/03/2015
12:00 am


Michigan State University – Detroit Centre, Detroit Michigan

This conference seeks to convene presentations, panels, and discussions that serve to promote better understanding of the opportunities and barriers for improving the capacity of philosophers of all specializations to collaborate and engage with scientists, engineers, policy-makers, and a wide range of publics to foster epistemically and ethically responsible scientific and technological research and policy-making. The meeting will be structured so as to encourage dialogue and catalyze future collaborations in this important area of research and practice. The attendees include graduate students, postdocs, and faculty who are already doing this work or who wish to do this work in the future and are looking to explore ways to do so.

Ethics of G.M.O.’s: Food Security vs. Environmental Impact

12/10/2014 - 13/10/2014
All Day

A SRPoiSE Consortium Event: Call for Submissions

Much of the public debate around genetically modified organisms (GMO) has focused on issues of food safety and security for human consumers, despite consistent scientific evidence that such concerns are largely unsubstantiated. This focus on FOOD safety has overshadowed other potentially more relevant concerns about the larger environmental and ecological impacts of GMO development and implementation. This workshop will explore these broader ethical issues as they relate to and conflict with issues of food safety and security.

The Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State invites submissions of proposal for papers or posters on any topic relating to GMOs. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is August 30, 2014 and notification of acceptances will be completed, after peer review of anonymized abstracts, by September 15, 2014.

For further information about the event or application process, please feel free to contact Jonathan at jzb18@psu.edu.

Science-Policy Interface: International Comparisons Workshop

21/05/2014 - 23/05/2014
All Day


Balsillie School of International Affairs, Waterloo Ontario

How to structure science-policy interfaces to make the most of science has become an increasing international concern. This workshop will focus on three national cultures: Canada, the U.S. (United States), and the U.K. (United Kingdom), each of which are long-standing, stable democracies that value science as part of their national culture. Yet the differences among them are still palpable with respect to institutional structures, governance traditions, laws, and customs regarding science policy issues.

The workshop aims to provide a synoptic overview of science policy interfaces in these three cultures and will be held at the University of Waterloo, May 21 to 23, 2014.Space is currently wait-listed, if you are interested in attending please email Heather Douglas (hdouglas@uwaterloo.ca).
