The Center for Bioethics, Health and Society at Wake Forest University is pleased to announce the second Junior Scholars in Bioethics Workshop. The Workshop gives junior (untenured) faculty working in bioethics an opportunity to present works-in-progress to scholars in bioethics and related fields. Commentators will provide constructive feedback to presenters with the goal of fostering scholarship in bioethics.
Works-in-progress will be read in advance by a group of experienced scholars in bioethics and related fields. Each author will present the paper during the workshop. The assigned reviewers will provide oral feedback and then the rest of the audience will be invited to participate in offering feedback and asking questions. The expectation is that this discussion will assist scholars in revising their papers prior to submitting them for publication.
Junior faculty working in bioethics in the United States are invited to submit abstracts/summaries of 500-750 words of the proposed paper along with a curriculum vitae. Papers should be works-in-progress that have not already been accepted for publication and that will not be submitted for publication until after the workshop at Wake Forest University. A committee of scholars will select three papers for presentation at the Junior Scholars in Bioethics Workshop. Authors will be required to submit a full draft of the paper in advance of the workshop to allow peer reviewers sufficient time to read the papers and prepare their comments.
The Center for Bioethics, Health and Society will reimburse advanced purchase coach airfare or mileage and provide lodging and meals for scholars whose works-in-progress are selected for presentation. It is expected the scholars will be present to participate in the discussion of all papers.
