Sabrina Stewart '14 is visiting The Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford University for the Michaelmas term. While at Oxford she will be working on a paper, "The Ethical Implications of a Cure for Autism and Asperger's Syndrome". Her project focuses on the moral status of persons on the autism spectrum, the consequences of this with regard to clinical decision-making, and whether a cure can enhance their well-being. Her project advisor at the Centre is Dr Bennett Foddy.
At Oxford, she has been involved in a bi-weekly "Applied Ethics Discussion Group". The group provides an opportunity to present one's research to encourage debate and receive feedback from other members at the Centre. She has also attended numerous lectures and seminars at Oxford, including some given by the Centre's director, Professor Julian Savulescu,
Winter Internship Program
Ethics and Public Service Internship
The Ethics Institute is partnering with the Center for Ethics and Public Service at the University of Miami School of Law [http://www.law.miami.edu/ceps/] to provide an intensive five-day seminar in applied ethics and the law. Professor Anthony Alfieri (University of Miami Professor of Law and Dean's Distinguished Scholar) and Professor Aine Donovan (Dartmouth) will work with a select group of Dartmouth undergraduate students to explore issues of legal ethics, conflict resolution and community service.
The seminar will be an intensive morning session with law students, and the afternoon session will focus on exploring community projects in the greater Miami area. Miami's Center for Ethics and Public Service has a partnership with the historically black churches in the area, and the students will meet with religious leaders and community organizers who have established programs in conflict resolution.
