Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce that the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine (CBSSM) Research Colloquium will occur on May 22, 2019 (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.). It will take place at Forum Hall, Palmer Commons, 100 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109.

The CBSSM Research Colloquium will feature the Bishop Lecture in Bioethics as the keynote address. Ruha Benjamin, PhD, will present the Bishop Lecture with a talk entitled: "Black Afterlives Matter: Reimagining Bioethics for an Ailing Body Politic."

Ruha Benjamin is Associate Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, where she serves on the executive committees of the Center for Digital Humanities and Center for Global Health and Health Policy, and is an Associate Faculty member in the Center for Information Technology Policy, Center for Health and Wellbeing, Program in History of Science, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program, and Department of Sociology.

The lecture is jointly presented by CBSSM and the Ronald C. and Nancy V. Bishop Lectureship in Bioethics fund. We are also grateful to this year's co-sponsors, The Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWG) and the Science, Technology & Society (STS) Program.

A more detailed agenda including presentation abstracts and speakers is available at CBSSM's 2019 Colloquium page.

Directions and parking information can be found here.

This event is free and open to the public. Early registration is encouraged as we have limited seating for the luncheon. Thank you!
