CALL FOR PAPERS: Edited Collection on the Ethical Legal and Social Implications of Emerging Technologies

 

Emerging technologies in robotics, genomic and reproductive medicine, and urban design are changing the ways humans relate to one another, our communities, future persons, and our environment. Ethics is fundamentally relational, and societies are structured through negotiating the multiplicity of relationships, shared customs, and laws that are intended to promote wellbeing. As such, shifts in those fundamental relationships arising from the introduction of new technologies, or novel application of existing technologies, have enormous ethical, legal and social implications.

Recovering Disaster

July 11-13, 2019

 

The initial impact of Hurricane Camille tended not to discriminate. Everyone who was hit was hit hard. But later…it wasn’t the hurricane that differentiated; it was the various responding relief agencies that made politically motivated decisions...

The claim in support of the Romani community’s Indian origin -- what the Orientalists first propounded is now reinforced by Genetics -- was, during the 18-19th centuries, premised upon the homophony between Romani and Indian languages. This was in line with notions of ‘border thinking’ so pervasive within the Orientalist discourse, and has since then provoked classist vis-à-vis confrontations and ideological practices of territorializing ‘differential space’ (Lefebvre, 1992).
