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.

We are especially interested in papers that seek to explore eighteenth-century texts in the context of the medical humanities and that view health and disease in the context of theoretical and historical work in ecological studies, animal studies, disability studies, or the new materialisms.
