Join the Center for Ethics and Culture for the Spring 2016 Schmitt Lecture, "Taking Responsibility: Science and its Revolutions, from Recombinant DNA to Gene Editing," with Benjamin Hurlbut (Arizona State University).

This lecture will explore the historical origins, contemporary contours, and political effect of this vision of scientific responsibility -- of the role of scientific authority in imagining, enacting, and governing technological futures -- attending in particular to the ways this vision shapes how we imagine, deliberate about, and govern that future.

Professor Benjamin Hurlbut teaches in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, where his research concerns the intersection of science and technology studies, bioethics, and political theory.
