NBOT Annual Workshop – Call for Papers

Date: 10 March 2016

Venue: Sydney Law School, University of Sydney

In March, the Network for Bodies, Organs and Tissues (NBOT) will host its annual multi-disciplinary workshop on bodies and tissues. The event provides a forum for discussions of moral, ethical and regulatory issues relating to the access and control of tissue. The Network welcomes papers that examine the challenges posed by the different uses of tissues (e.g. reproductive, therapeutic, regenerative, research, education, etc.), and debates about how to manage and resolve body-based conflicts. It encourages contributions from a diverse range of disciplines, and which explore the broader implications of changes in the way we regard the human body, organs and tissues.

We are currently calling for expressions of interest from Network members and their colleagues.

Please send abstracts (200 words) to cameron.stewart@sydney.edu.au by Friday 19 February 2016.We encourage you to pass this invitation onto students and other interested colleagues who wish to speak about their research in an encouraging and supportive environment.

Attendance at the workshop will be free but registration is essential.  Register here
