Biomedical Ethics Seminar Series


Topic: Using Theatre to Foster Ethics and Science Conversations

It is widely understood that one of the most important determinants of ethical behavior is an organization’s culture, and that culture is not defined simply by an ethical code, online training, or even a single classroom course. One potentially valuable tool to induce the necessary reflection, conversation, and empathy is the staging of live theatre. Staged readings of academic dramas are an economical, engaging, and useful approach to foster a culture of ethics in science. Join us for this discussion of goals, recent staged readings, and possible implications for UC San Diego.

The UC San Diego Biomedical Ethics Seminar Series meets once monthly for faculty, staff, and students to discuss selected ethics topics.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month, 4:30–6:30 p.m. This month the location has changed. It will take place at UC San Diego in theBiomedical Research Facility 2 (BRF2)—Room 1102
