Journey to the Center of Bioethics and Humanities

As we gather in the center of the country for the 2017 ASBH Annual Meeting, we consider the theme of “centering” in bioethics and humanities. Who or what is at the center of our work? What locates our roles and responsibilities within ethics centers, medical centers, and academic centers? How do we work through differences in activities and practices as members of diverse and decentralized professions? What is at stake as we engage complex perspectives from left, right, and center? How do we center ourselves as educators, scholars, and clinicians – professionally and personally – and what helps us continue our work when we find ourselves off center? Is the center where we need to be? We welcome proposals on the theme of “centering” and others in every submission category.
