Postgraduate Bioethics Conference 2019
9-10 September, Swansea University
Professor Martha Fineman (Emory)
Professor John Harris (Manchester)
Professor Sally Holland (Children's Commissioner for Wales).
Prof Martha Fineman will give a keynote on vulnerability and justice.
Sally Holland (Children’s Commissioner for Wales) on future generations.
Prof John Harris (Manchester) on intergenerationality and ethics.
Invited speakers from a number of centres including the Centre for Innovative Ageing and the Wales Observatory on Children’s Rights.
The discussion will centre which is the greater duty- to future or existing generations (where they are in tension).
'Disrupting Cultures in Academia' will be run by the Director of Student Services and Director of Continuing Education for Swansea University, with ECR facilitators. It will focus on empowering PGs and ECRs to have the ‘difficult conversations’ around asking for support, creating positive working culture, and development. It is a collaborative session run in two- three groups depending on numbers.
Publishing and reviewing - lead TBC
Funding- Paul Woodgate and a member of the Swansea Research and Innovation bids team.
These will run three or four at a time depending on numbers. Allowing 20-25mins per speaker including questions.
The workshops and funding talk aim to provide practical advice and support, from peers as much as those leading the sessions.
We would like to offer x8 national travel bursaries of £100 and x6 international bursaries of £200, with international bursaries prioritised for low resource countries.
Monday night's conference dinner will be at a restaurant in Swansea marina.
Active start is an optional (gentle!) yoga or similar session.
We hope to arrange some more outdoor/beach-based activity if weather allows.
