Nieman Fellow, Harvard University

ALSO ON March 4:
Rethinking Personhood: Fetuses, Animals, and Robots
Austin Hall 111
Are there entities that we do not (or would not) recognize as persons but should, or entities that we do (or would) recognize as persons but should not? Should fetuses, animals, or artificial intelligences have “human” rights? On what grounds should we recognize the moral and legal standing of others? Please join the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics and the Human Rights Program for a panel discussion on these and related questions with leading experts who will look to entities whose status is unclear or contested in order to rethink the nature of moral and legal personhood.
Panelists include: Lawrence B. Solum, of Georgetown Law; Alice Crary, Department of Philosphy, The New School; and I. Glenn Cohen, of Harvard Law School.
