  • Webinar: New Ethical Challenges in Experimental Political Science

    PostedTuesday, June 7, 2016 AT 12:42 PM

    Overview

    Over the past two decades, political scientists have adopted experimental methods to interact directly with subjects in the United States and globally. This new wave of field experimentation has produced some very public controversies. Researchers have created illegal attack advertisements during political campaigns, exposed subjects to risks of violence through experiments conducted in authoritarian regimes overseas, and even gone so far as to commit crimes to measure police responses. These recent controversies have contributed to distrust among the public and made apparent the need to consider the ethical implications of this experimental work. How can IRBs guide political scientists in conducting ethically sound research while continuing to generate valuable knowledge about the political, economic, and cultural sphere? 

    Using case studies from global and domestic research, a political scientist and an ethicist will:

    Social and Conceptual Issues in Astrobiology

    September 24-25, 2016   Clemson, SC, USA

     

         Many researchers who study the origins, evolution, and distribution of life in the universe (astrobiology) believe we are on the brink of one of the most important discoveries in human history.   As NASA’s chief scientist recently announced: “I think we're going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we're going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years.”   If so, humanity will soon confront a series of complex challenges that cannot be resolved without strong input from disciplines beyond the sciences.  While NASA’s and the nascent European vision for astrobiology are far ranging and include broad questions about the future of life in the universe, these have so far ...
