Political scientist and Bush administration adviser Diana Schaub will deliver a talk titled "Bioethics: What Would the Founders Say?" at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11, in 219 Burr Hall.
Schaub is chair of the Department of Political Science at Loyola College in Maryland and has been a member of the President's Council on Bioethics since 2004. She will discuss what guidance the U.S. Constitution offers in thinking about the ethical dilemmas posed by biotechnology, drawing upon views of America's founding fathers.
The event is sponsored by the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions as part of the "America's Founding and Future" lecture series. The talk originally was planned for March 2007 but was rescheduled.
