Bovay Seminar Series

The Bovay Seminar Series in Engineering Ethics

The Bovay Seminar Series is a weekly lunchtime speaker series held in the fall of each year.  Speakers are invited from government, industry, and academia to speak about research, development, and policy issues that have relevance for consideration in engineering ethics.  The attendees at the seminars are engineering professors and students and also professors and students from the arts and sciences, including anthropology, science and technology studies, peace studies, ethics and public life, and others.  Speakers range from participants in particular technological episodes to analysts who analyze such episodes.  Cross-disciplinary dialog is encouraged in the seminars.  The conversations can get quite lively and questions often continue even as the the official seminar time period passes!
