Call for Poster Presentations
3rd Annual Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology Conference
May 22-24, 2013
Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology
The University of Texas at Dallas

Science, technology, and medicine unquestionably have a major impact on our lives. We live with constant technological innovation and scientific discovery, and this changes the conditions that we live in and the way we understand ourselves and the world we live in. Science, technology, and medicine are thus entangled with our values, our culture, and our politics, and they have an important impact on policymaking and action.

We invite proposals for poster presentations that engage with these issues from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical approaches, including philosophy of science, technology, and medicine, epistemology, ethics and political philosophy, history, science and technology studies, policy studies, and natural and social sciences. We will consider proposals for individual papers, but also thematic panel sessions and more informal formats. Please feel free to contact us early to discuss potential panel formats at values@utdallas.edu

We are especially interested and will give preference to proposals that fit this year’s target theme: **Values in the Science and Practice of Medicine**. Suggested topics include:

* Biases in Medical Research
* Harms and Benefits of Medical Patents
* Critiques and Proposals for Evidence-Based Medicine Standards
* Ethical Implications of Prenatal Testing
* Sex and Gender in Medical Research or Practice
* Compassion and Profit in Healthcare
* Healthcare Justice
* The Value of Primary Care
* Problems of Medicalization
* Theorizing Disability and Disease

Keynote Speakers:

* Kristen Intemann, Montana State University
* Adrienne Asch, Yeshiva University
