Food Ethics Lecture Webcast

2011 October 22
by Paul Mabrey

The Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State—in collaboration with the Bioethics Program and several other units at University Park—invites you to join us for the third lecture in our Food Ethics Lectures Series on Monday October 24, 3pm EST.

Monday’s lecture is by David Castle, Chair of Innovation in the Life Sciences, University of Edinburgh

“Personalized Nutrition: Ethical and Regulatory Aspects”

To view the lecture live, go to:  http://www.rockethics.psu.edu/bios/castle.shtml and click on the Mediasite logo

No advance registration is required.

Viewers are also encouraged to follow and engage in the conversation about food ethics on the Rock Ethics Institute’s Bioethics Blog, http://rockblogs.psu.edu/bioethics/, and on the Public Philosophy Network: http://publicphilosophynetwork.ning.com/group/foodethics .

The series explores some of the most compelling issues in food ethics today—from the agrarian tradition to industrial farming, from the ethics of nutrigenomics to food safety and food security, from fish in pain to the fish on your plate.  This course of eight distinct but interrelated lectures is—like any good meal—designed to leave the audience both satisfied and wanting more.  The lectures can be viewed live on the web, and questions can be submitted in real time to the speakers.  For a list of all the lectures, please go to:  http://rockethics.psu.edu/bioethics/events/food1112.shtml
