Bioethics Lunch – Star Wars

DATE: Thursday, May 02, 2019 TIME: 12:00 pm—1:30 pm LOCATION: NCRC, B10 G065

The Biointerfaces Interlaboratory Committees and Dr. Barry Belmont invite you to join us for our last Bioethics lunch of the semester! In celebration of both the end of another successful semester and Star Wars Day, our May ethics lunch will be the second iteration of last year’s highly popular “Ethics of Star Wars.” Last year barely scratched the surface, and there are many Star Wars themed ethical dilemmas left up for debate. How might human-machine interfaces and life-preservation technology lead to an evil galactic takeover? Is exerting forcible influence over another sentient being’s mind, a mind-trick if you will, an ethical political tactic if it’s used for the greater good? What in the many worlds is going on with the blue milk? Please join us for free lunch and insightful discussion!
