Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) Call for panel: Making Medical Innovation Ethical

August 30 to September 2, 2017

Boston, Massachusetts, USA

New medical technologies often challenge and remake frameworks for evaluating the ethics of biomedical procedures. This panel, organized by the Science, Technology, and Medicine section of the Society for Medical Anthropology, seeks to deepen the conversation about what happens when new medical tools come up against existing ethical sensibilities.

The abstract submission deadline for this panel is February 19, 2017 at noon EST. More information about the Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science is available on the 4S website.
