Reimagining and Claiming the Role of Public Bioethics and Health Humanities

October 26, 2022 (All day) to October 29, 2022 (All day)

ASBH 24th Annual Conference

Call for Proposals: ASBH’s 24th Annual Conference examines the role of bioethics and the health humanities in understanding some of our most pressing public controversies and concerns. It will critically explore the transformations that bioethics and the health humanities have undergone in both their evolution as fields and their engagement with the public as highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will address critical questions such as: How can we reckon with past failings and rebuild trust among diverse communities? How might the public face of bioethics continue to shift over the coming years? How can we recognize the connections between bioethics and the health humanities, and use these intersections to propel us toward solutions to pressing public problems?
