This course explores the increasingly influential field of bioethics. Students will examine (1) the historical, sociological, public health, and legal contexts leading bioethics to slowly emerge as a coherent field in the mid 20th century; (2) the biomedical developments, legal engagements, and political controversies that reshaped the enterprise towards the latter part of the century; and (3) contemporary issues in bioethics - from human subject protections to reproductive and genetic technologies - and the role of law and public policy in mediating the relationship between medicine, science, public health, and society.
