Hello all! Congrats to all of the MS4s who ma']['ched!!
1. Best of luck to everyone taking exams this week!
2. The Genetics in Medicine group is partnering with ISGP, Drexel Med and Penn Center for precision Medicine to present a virtual conference on Tuesday March 27th on Precision Medicine. Its completely online and can be live streamed from Facebook at Facebook.com/ISGPforum.
3. The Center for the Humanities at Temple University invites you to attend the CHAT Graduate Fellows Conference entitled "Being Human: Life, Death and Discourse"on March 23rd 1-4pm in the CHAT Lounge on Gladfelter Hall, 10th Floor.
This year's CHAT symposium, "Being Human: Life, Death, and Discourse" to be held on March 23 from 1-4 PM will feature three speakers from different disciplines, addressing distinct yet overlapping questions related to human representations and conceptions of life and death.
We live in an age of medical advancements that are constantly providing new means to prolong life and reduce deaths. This coincides with heightened attention to structural violences in society as technology simultaneously allows for greater awareness of police brutality and the festering exploitation of black bodies in the US and beyond. We are seemingly left with more questions than simple solutions on what it means to be human, whose humanity is given priority, and how we can use scientific advancements to promote social progress rather than to simply further new means of power and control. The symposium begins at 1 PM with “Risk/Management: Reflections on the Death of Eric Garner and the Peril of Black Mobility” presented by Dr. Asha Best (Geography, Clark University). This will be followed at 2 PM with "Marching Toward Our Post-Human Future: Bodies as Shells", presented by Dr. Kimberly Mutcherson (Rutgers Law School). The final talk, "Is Death Bad for You? Two Puzzles About the Badness of Death", presented by Dr. Shelly Kagan, (Philosophy, Yale University) begins at 3 PM. Each talk will end with a 15 minute Q&A session, and a reception will follow the final talk at 4 PM.
