Community talk on ethics in the arts

A community talk covering the issues surrounding ethics in the arts will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 6 at the University of Texas Health Science Center, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive.

Moderated by poet and memoirist Phillip Lopate and Dr. Jerry Winakur, Clinical Professor of Medicine, UTHSC, Medical School, Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics, attendees will discuss such issues as:

  • How far is too far when recreating or recording pain and suffering?
  • Does this re-creation or recording belong solely to the creator or also to the source?
  • Where is the line between documentation and exploitation?
 
This will be a group discussion. For more information, e-mail Leslie Plant at Gemini Ink, uww@geminiink.org.
 
Co-sponsored by the Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics – University of Texas Health Science Center.
