The blog Discrimination and Disadvantage is in the midst of an on-line symposium on Melinda Hall’s new book The Bioethics of Enhancement: Transhumanism, Disability, and Biopolitics.
Commentaries by Shelley Tremain as well as Jane Dryden and Ladelle McWhorter are already up, with one more forthcoming from Catherine Clune-Taylor. At the end of this week, Hall, herself, will respond to the commentary. If you love a good Author Meets Critics session at a conference, or enjoy a good book review as much as the book itself, this is just the thing for you. It’s also a good first step into disability ethics and Foucauldian power analyses of biopolitics.
