TMC Seminar (Online): “Duty and Justice in Jewish Bioethics: The Questions of Vaccines and Pandemics,” Laurie Zoloth, RN, PhD
Registration is free and gives access to all seminars in the series.
Laurie Zoloth is the Margaret E. Burton Professor of Religion and Ethics at the University of Chicago Divinity School and Senior Advisor to the Provost for Programs on Social Ethics. A leader in the field of religious studies with particular scholarly interest in bioethics and Jewish studies, Laurie Zoloth’s research explores religion and ethics, drawing from sources ranging from Biblical and Talmudic texts to postmodern Jewish philosophy, including the writings of Emmanuel Levinas. Her scholarship spans the ethics of genetic engineering, stem cell research, synthetic biology, social justice in health care, and how science and medicine are taught. She also researches the practices of interreligious dialogue, exploring how religion plays a role in public discussion and policy.
Zoloth is author of Health Care and the Ethics of Encounter: A Jewish Discussion of Social Justice and co-editor of five books, including Notes from a Narrow Ridge: Religion and Bioethics and Jews and Genes: The Genetic Future in Contemporary Jewish Thought.
