Lectures in Ethics, Policy, and Science series announces spring speakers

The Purdue Lectures in Ethics, Policy, and Science will host two expert speakers this spring. The series, now in its 12th year, explores questions of bioethics -- how to treat living beings -- and related policy and science issues.

The events are: 

* Feb. 22 (Th): Paul Thompson, the W.K. Kellogg Chair in Agricultural, Food and Community Ethics, Michigan State University. "4 Archetypes for Future Food Systems." Models for systems of production, processing, distribution and consumption in an era of climate change and resource scarcity. 5:30-7 p.m. Jischke Hall, Room 1001.

* March 23 (F): Catherine Lu, associate professor of political science at McGill University, Montreal, Canada; associate director of McGill's Institute for the Study of International Development; acting director of the Yan P. Lin Centre, and coordinator of the centre's Research Group on Global Justice. "Justice and Reconciliation in World Politics." 3:30-5 p.m. Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, Room 121.

The lecture series seeks to give shape to ethical problems as they pertain to policy contexts by connecting philosophical and scientific insights. It is managed and led annually by two graduate student facilitators from the Department of Philosophy. The series is supported by a large number of academic and other units at Purdue. The series is free and open to the public.

The site at www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/bioethics contains more about the series and will list any added speakers.
