Rock Colloquia Series: Ethical literacy across health and healthcare: What might it look like? How do we get there?

When: Apr 14, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Where: Rock Conference Room, 133 Sparks Building

Citizen and patient involvement is increasingly promoted as a way to attain sustainable health and quality healthcare. This strategy is acknowledged to pose many practical challenges and to require improved rates of health literacy. Less discussed, is that involvement initiatives across health also present patients, citizens and policy makers with complex, dynamic ethical challenges that require greater ethics literacy and debate if they are to be addressed effectively. The presentation will, by drawing on examples such as childhood vaccination, stigma and ‘vaping’, examine what an ‘engaging’ health ethic might look like and the developments that are needed to attain it.

Rock Colloquia Series: Is the Cyborg-Athlete “Just around the Corner?” Or is it “Just Here?” A Tentative Approach to the Debate on the Definition of the Cyborg

When: Mar 31, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Where: Rock Conference Room, 133 Sparks Building

Abstract: In this paper, I provide an overview of the debate on the definition of the cyborg. In so doing, I identify two sides in the debate: the continuist approach and the exceptionalist approach. The latter regards the cyborg as a fiction being who has never existed, whereas the former conceives of the cyborg as a being that exists in our world. Then, I identify the main proponents of both approaches: first, in the philosophy in general and second, in the philosophy of sport. This overview is the foundational work for addressing the question of whether or not athletes should be regarded as cyborg.

Rock Colloquia Series: Gazan Refugee Children’s Media Uses: Implications for Establishing a Children, Youth, Media and Conflict Zone Lab at Penn State

When: Mar 24, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Where: Rock Conference Room, 133 Sparks Building

Responding to research about children and media that has emphasized an analysis of the effects or interpretation by children living in peace zones of fictive violence, nascent literature about children, media and conflict, has instead emphasized an analysis of the effects or interpretation by children living in peace zones of non-fiction violence, or news. In this brownbag I discuss alternative conceptions for the analysis of children, media and conflict based on research I conducted with Palestinian children.
