    SSPS HDR Ethics Seminar

    The approach to ethics in research currently does not fully understand or incorporate the changes in the dynamical synthetic ecology in which our systems actually operate. This has been made even more complex and potentially uncertain and unstable through the levels of socio-info/techno connectivity we now enjoy compared to three decades ago. Our decisions and solutions are often deeply entangled in ways that it is almost impossible to measure (Atkinson 2010). This short talk will look at the place of ethics in our rapidly changing world and the indivisibility between ethics and technology, as we enter the Quantum Age.

    Living with Monsters - Anthropology Symposium

    Monsters are not just part of the popular imaginary, stalking movie screens and the pages of books. They manifest in socio-culturally specific ways across the world, and haunt humans no matter where they live. The symposium draws on two anthropological traditions—an interest in the monstrous and the ethnographic method—in the hope of fostering interdisciplinary dialogue: adding an anthropological voice to discussions currently taking place in the inter-disciplinary field of monster studies.
