Jacob Metcalf: “Meet Shmeat: Animal Biotechnologies and the Philosophical Tensions of the New Foods Movements”
May 4, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Center for Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Jacob Metcalf, Science and Social Justice Postdoctoral Fellow, UCSC
“Meet Shmeat: Animal Biotechnologies and the Philosophical Tensions of the New Foods Movements”
Doctor Metcalf is the Postdoctoral Fellow in an NSF-funded program training graduate students in interdisciplinary inquiry on the co-constitution of ethics and scientific knowledge. His research concerns the construction of ethical inquiry. He proposes new applied ethics methodologies that account for the boundaries drawn within techno-scientific apparatuses, and asks how science and technology might become more responsive to the conditions and consequences of those boundaries.
