NIH Colloquium: Melanie Boly

Join us at the NIH Clinical Center with Melanie Boly of the University of Wisconsin for this semester's first meeting of the Joint Colloquium in Bioethics. This semester's topic is consciousness.The Joint Colloquium in Bioethics is a topical seminar that meets 4-5 times each semester at the NIH Clinical Center to discuss the work of distinguished visiting speakers. The seminar is co-sponsored by the NIH Department of Bioethics, The Kennedy Institute of Ethics, and the Philosophy Departments of George Washington University and the University of Maryland. Each meeting includes a two-hour discussion of the visiting scholar's work (circulated ahead of time), followed by an informal dinner on-site. Discussion is friendly but quite lively as a diversity of perspectives is represented. The seminars are attended by a small and select group of faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral candidates.

The Institute point person for the Colloquium is Senior Research Scholar Sean Aas; the NIH's Renee Goodman Goodman is the series coordinator. Contact Ms. Goodman to obtain readings or to join the mailing list for this series.
