Rhetoric@Davis Panel: Language is Moral Action

The Rhetoric@Davis Research Cluster and the UC Davis Bioethics Academy will host the event, CRISPR Ethics: Language is Moral Action, on February 8, 4:30-6:30 p.m. 
Join us and our interdisciplinary panel of experts for a lively discussion. Panelists, who are members of the UC Davis Bioethics Academy, will focus on CRISPR, a genome modification technique, to talk about language, ethics, and public deliberation in the face of scientific and technological uncertainty. They will do so from four perspectives: rhetoric and composition, religious studies, law, and bioethics. Panelists will also discuss their collaborative research on integrative bioethics and recent publications and conference presentations. 
The event is free and will take place at the UC Davis School of Law, Martin Luther King Jr. Hall, Room 1001.
Panelists include Dr. Sarah Perrault of the University Writing Program, Dr. Meaghan O’Keefe of Religious Studies, Dr. Lisa Ikemoto of the School of Law, and Dr. Mark Yarborough of the Bioethics Program.
