CFP: Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference
Submission deadline: January 15, 2017
May 18, 2017 - May 21, 2017
Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology, University of Texas at Dallas
Richardson, United States
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the interplay between human, ethical, cultural, and political values, on the one hand, and science, technology, engineering, and medical research and practice, on the other hand. We invite presentations that seek not only to understand how values and science can and do influence one another, but also how they should interact (as well as interactions and influences that should be avoided). Finally, we are ultimately interested in promoting ethically responsible and socially beneficial scientific research and technological innovation, the social conditions for the pursuit and appreciation of science and technology, and critical reflection about the influence of science, technology, and medicine on our values, culture, practices, and worldview.
This year includes collaboration with the Comics and Popular Arts Conference (CPAC) to jointly present a special set of target themes for the conference related to representations of science in the media and popular culture. See our website for more information.
