Feminism and Bioethics conference 11/14/08 at Stony Brook Manhattan

via email from David Clinton Wills, co-managing editor of International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (IJFAB):

Readers who will be in New York on November 14 might be interested in attending this conference at Stony Brook Manhattan, which includes a section on disability studies.

It will be an intellectually invigorating time, with talks from Professors Eva Feder Kittay, Jackie Leach Scully, Lisa Diedrich, Lisa Eckenweiler, Ruth Macklin, and James V. Nelson. We have a vibrant day planned with a free catered continental breakfast in the morning and a free catered reception/open bar at the close at the Black Duck.

The conference starts at 9:00 a.m. (and ends at 6 p.m.) and our all inclusive registration is free! Stony Brook Manhattan is located in the heart of Manhattan on 401 Park Ave South (between 27th and 28th streets)
