This one day event provides a forum for discussion, debate  and deliberation around a series of presentations relating to  re/production, ethics and embodiment. The symposium will seek to  interrogate the extent to which ethical engagement can enhance  theoretical work on embodiment; and the extent to which theories of  embodiment can contribute to bioethics.

 *              Professor Elizabeth Ettorre: Biopolitics,  reproductive genetics and gender: what?s embodied ethics got to do with  it?

 *              Dr Gill Haddow: Do cyborgs feel?  The need for an embodiment epistemology

 *              Professor Anne Kerr: Embodiment, emotion and biomedical innovation

 *              Dr Fadhila Mazanderani: ?It?s my body?: ethics,  experience and expertise in controversial medical theories and  treatments

 *              PROFESSOR JACKIE LEACH SCULLY: BIONIC BETTERMENT: THE RIGHT KIND OF DISABLED BODY?

This event is being hosted by Professor Sarah  Cunningham-Burley and Dr Amy Chandler, at the University of Edinburgh,  as part of the Wellcome Trust funded Strategic Award in Bioethics: The  Human Body, its Scope, Limits and Future (PI John Harris, University of  Manchester).
