Professor Warwick Anderson Wins an ARC Laureate Fellowship, 10 August 2011
Congratulations to Professor Warwick Anderson, who is a University of Sydney Professorial Research Fellow in both the Department of History and at VELiM. Warwick has just been awarded an ARC Laureate Fellowship! Only 17 Laureate Fellowships were awarded in this round.
Warwick’s Laureate project ‘Southern racial conceptions: comparative histories and contemporary legacies’ aims to reveal intense scientific debate about what it meant to be human in the southern hemisphere during the twentieth century, placing Australian racial thought in a new context. Through comparative study, it shows the distinctive character and scope of racial ideas in southern settler societies, and assesses their global impact.
The Australian reported on the awards today in an article within the Higher Education section entitled “Fellowships reward shining stars”. Further information can be found on the ARC website.
A ONE-DAY WORKSHOP: REPRODUCING NORMALITY: DISABILITY, PRENATAL TESTING AND BIOETHICS
In the past thirty years, prenatal testing of the fetus has become increasingly common practice in pregnancy. Prenatal testing ranges from non-invasive techniques such as routine ultrasound and emerging methods of fetal DNA testing, to more invasive technologies such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling. It may also include the use of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis within IVF practices.
While few women pursue a pregnancy without encountering some form of prenatal testing – most usually, ultrasound and associated fetoplacental hormone tests in the first trimester of pregnancy – the ethical issues that arise from this are far from resolved. The raison d’etre of prenatal testing is to detect fetal anomalies. This enables– and requires – women (and their partners) to make choices about whether to continue a pregnancy or not. In doing so, these technologies prompt difficult questions about the ethics of selective and late terminations of pregnancy on the basis of fetal anomalies.
For instance, does selective termination on the basis of disability entail a conflict between women’s reproductive autonomy and disability rights? Does the legal criterion of “serious disability” provide adequate guidance for determining when it is permissible to terminate a pregnancy? How do perceptions of normal bodies, and ideas about the social and moral importance of normality, affect reproduction and its ethics?
This workshop addresses these questions and others raised by prenatal testing. The presenters articulate new ways of thinking about disability and the impacts of prenatal testing. Speakers include eminent scholars from the disciplines of bioethics, disability studies, law, philosophy and sociology. This interdisciplinary forum sets the stage for new theoretical and applied approaches to the ethics of prenatal testing and disability.

DOING DRUGS: THE ETHICS, ECONOMICS AND POLITICS OF NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL MEDICINES POLICY
A one-day symposium, Tuesday, 29 November 2011
Eastern Avenue Lecture Theatre, Level 3 , Eastern Auditorium, University of Sydney
Medicines play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many diseases. At the same time, however, they can have serious adverse effects (>140,000 Australians are admitted to hospital every year for problems related to medicine) and are expensive (PBS expenditure in 2009 was $7679.3 million). The principal challenge, therefore, is to design systems and policies that enable equitable access to the medicines that people need, that ensure their safety and quality, and that do so at a cost that individuals and the community can afford. This is not straightforward task, however, and around the globe governments struggle to respond to global economic constraints, increasing drug costs, rapid developments in biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals, aging populations, changes to intellectual property rights, changing consumer expectations, and the globalisation of clinical research and drug development.
This symposium, which is presented by the Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine, The Centre for Health Governance, Law and Ethics and the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney and the Australian Institute of Health Innovation at the University of NSW, addresses some of the challenges confronting the development of medicines policy in Australian and internationally. Speakers include eminent scholars from a range of disciplines, including public health, pharmacology, sociology, health economics, bioethics, politics and consumer advocacy.

Women's Reproductive Rights: Selves, Others, Bodies
A Human Rights and Democratisation Special Lecture, Tuesday 2 November 2010
For decades the phrase ‘women’s reproductive rights’ served as a rallying cry for assertions of women’s right to control their own fertility, including decisions about the number and spacing of their children. Numerous states have explicitly stated their rejection of any obligation to work towards the realization of these rights for women, prompting the question of how to overcome their reluctance. The issue has been complicated by the emergence of: ‘human rights’ as the framework within which women’s claims are increasingly understood, by the ‘globalisation of motherhood’, and the development of technologies that have facilitated markets in baby-making. Presenter Yasmine Ergas considers the implications for the decision-making capacity of men and women as to when and how to reproduce, and the consequences for women’s control over their own bodies.
Presented by Yasmine Ergas, Associate Director, Institute for the Study of Human Rights, and Adjunct Professor, Columbia University.
Co-presented with the Master of Human Rights and Democratisation (Asia Pacific) Program, the Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine (VELiM), and the Sydney Centre for International Law (SCIL), at the University of Sydney.
Date: Tuesday 2 November 2010
Time: 4.00 pm to 5.30 pm
Venue: Law School Lecture Theatre 106, Eastern Avenue, Camperdown Campus, the University of Sydney
Free event, no booking or registration required.

"Wrong Side of the Bus" screening
Wallace Theatre, University of Sydney on Tuesday June 22nd at 6pm
“Melbourne psychiatrist Sidney Bloch returns to South Africa, the country of his birth, with his teenage son. Sid has been plagued by guilt for “not doing enough” when segregation was introduced during the apartheid era more than 40 years ago. Now he’s in search of forgiveness. As a young medical student Sid Bloch sat with black South Africans on the ‘wrong side of the bus’ when segregation was introduced, but his protest was short-lived and his guilt over his inactivity is compounded by his heritage: he's the son of Lithuanian-Jews persecuted by the Nazis. More than 40 years later he reunites with his South African fellow students, and meets political activists and ex-prisoners including a hero of the freedom movement Albie Sachs. These encounters challenge and help him to make peace with his own conscience.” ABC Compass

Law in the Time of Anthrax
Presented by Dr Christian Enemark, Centre for International Security
12th March 2009
In 2009 Australia will adopt a new scheme to regulate the possession, handling, transfer and disposal of so-called ‘security-sensitive biological agents’. The scheme is modelled on U.S. ‘select agents’ regulations which were strengthened after the anthrax attacks of late 2001. Laboratory research on pathogenic micro-organisms is a difficult subject of security-oriented attention because, on the one hand, it vitally informs medical and public health responses to infectious disease threats of natural or deliberate origin. On the other hand, biological agents, and the knowledge of what makes them dangerous, can be diverted and used for malign purposes. Drawing on U.S. experiences, this presentation explores some of the dilemmas which arise when a government chooses to ‘securitize’ infectious disease threats using regulatory mechanisms. The challenge for biosecurity regulation, implemented to address concerns about biological weapons use, is to maximise security benefits while minimising interference with legitimate scientific research conducted for therapeutic ends.
Congratulations to our colleague Wendy Lipworth, who was awarded her PhD on the 18th of December, 2009. Dr Lipworth’s thesis is titled Rehabilitating the Social in Biomedical Publishing: Embracing Community and Intersubjectivity in Manuscript Review.
