Bioethics Research Library Awarded Institute of Museums and Library Services Grant
The Bioethics Research Library of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics was awarded an Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) grant.
The BRL proposes to preserve and make freely available over 350 hours of recorded lectures presented at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics (KIE), including its annual Intensive Bioethics Course. The recordings address the major bioethical concerns of the past fifty years, including public health policy, reproductive health care, rationing of care, euthanasia, elder care, clinical research ethics, stem cell research, gene therapy, the HIV-AIDS crisis, religious ethics as they relate to health care, the intersection of bioethics and race, and feminist perspectives on bioethics. These lectures were delivered by KIE scholars and a variety of other prominent doctors, philosophers, public health officials, theologians, and scientists.
