Book Manuscript Workshop with Dr. Rachel Ankeny

On November 8th, 2022 the AJI welcomes Dr. Rachel Ankeny for a book manuscript workshop on In Defense of Medical Cases. Location: Spigner House.

Professor Rachel A. Ankeny is an interdisciplinary teacher and scholar whose areas of expertise cross three fields: history/philosophy of science particularly biological and biomedical sciences, bioethics and science policy, and food studies. She is an Honorary Visiting Professor in the College of Social Science and International Studies (Philosophy) at the University of Exeter (UK) and editor in chief of Studies in History & Philosophy of Science.

We are delighted to be meeting in person again, and in an unusual coincidence, many of the BMW attendees will fly to Pittsburgh to attend and even present at the Philosophy of Science Assocation's annual meeting. Stay tuned for more information about Dr. Ankey's visit, including other ways to see this scholar in action while she's on campus.
