Conversations in Bioethics on Diversity

February 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

From the event organizer: In an era of ever-growing pharmaceutical enhancement, what counts as intellectually disabled, and why would that matter? How does the way we define disability (and normalcy) impact the just distribution of resources in society — and the way society treats those who happen to fall outside the norm? How are foundational concepts in ethics like dignity or autonomy complicated by reflection on the many ways we are dependent on others in the course of any “normal” human lifespan?

Rick will be a speaker at this year’s event, which will include clips from the film.
