Reproductive Ethics: New Challenges and Conversations
Call for Abstracts
Friday-Saturday, April 8-9, 2016 (note date change from original post)
Albany Medical College
Alden March Bioethics Institute
Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Reproductive ethics does not suffer from a lack of challenging issues, yet a few “hot button” questions such as abortion and surrogacy seem to attract much of the attention, while other issues and dilemmas remain relatively underdeveloped in the bioethics literature. The goal this conference is to explore and expand the range of topics addressed in reproductive ethics. While new thoughts on well-worn discussions are welcome, we are also inviting scholars to share ideas on areas that have received less attention in the field.
This is intended to be a multi-disciplinary conference bringing together philosophers, clinicians, sociologists, anthropologists and other scholars whose research or clinical interests touch reproductive issues. We are seeking abstracts for presentations. Each accepted speaker will have a 30 minute presentation time (20 minutes to present, 10 minutes for Q&A). Graduate and medical students are encouraged to apply and there will be an award for the best student paper.
Confirmed keynote speakers are Alice Dreger, PhD, and Melissa Cheyney, PhD, CPM, LDM. The conference organizers intend to publish an edited collection of essays from selected conference presentations.
Please limit abstracts to 250 words. The deadline for abstracts is November 1, 2015. Submissions will receive a response by December 15, 2014. Abstracts should be sent to Claire Frazier at Frazier.
