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.
