These lectures address diverse topics within bioethics and the medical humanities. Speakers are MH&B faculty or special guests we've invited to present. The lectures run every Thursday from noon to 12:45pm in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie building, during The Graduate School's fall, winter, and spring quarters. Due to public interest, we've made these lectures open to all, inside and outside the Northwestern community. Please feel free to bring a lunch.

Bioethicists Without Bioethicists
Thursday, March 7, 2013
In this presentation, Chambers will examine two trends that have the potential to redefine bioethics. The first is the self-conscious use of personal life experiences in the analysis of moral problems in medicine. The second is the presence of new voices in bioethics that arise outside of the academy.
