A message from FAB Co-Coordinator Jackie Leach Scully:
Since 1996 the International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (FAB) has held a biannual World Congress, and next year sees us gathering in Mexico City from 22-24 June 2014. This runs immediately before the World Congress on Bioethics taking place in the same location from 25-28 June 2014.
These are (forgive the predictable but irresistible pun) FABulous occasions! Feminist bioethicists from all over the world meet to bring their varied perspectives and priorities to challenging topics in bioethics. From my own experience I can say that FAB Congresses are marked by an atmosphere of encouragement and inquiry, by their friendliness and lack of hierarchy, and by being particularly welcoming to early career researchers.
FAB Co-coordinator Hilde Lindemann and I are chairing the Congress planning committee, and we warmly invite you to submit proposals for papers and panels. More information on how to submit proposals can be found here: http://www.fabnet.org/congress_and_iab.html .The Congress theme is Health Care Ethics: Local, Global, Universal but submissions on any topic in feminist bioethics are welcome too.
FAB membership includes a subscription to the International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (IJFAB)
We look forward to meeting you in Mexico City!
