Biography
Rosalyn W. Berne is Associate Professor of Engineering and Society in the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. While on leave of absence from UVA from 2018-2020, she served as Director of the Center for Engineering Ethics and Society of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Her work with the NAE included PI of the Online Ethics Center for Engineering and Science (OEC), a project sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Berne served formerly as Vice President for Academic Affairs for the Institution for Shipboard Education, during which time she led the creation and execution of Semester at Sea’s “Engineering a New Tomorrow,” a learning-service voyage to West Indies, Central and South American ports of call. Berne earned a PhD in Religious Studies (with a focus on bioethics), M.A and B.A. degrees in Communication Studies, all from the University of Virginia. As a scholar she explores the intersecting realms of emerging technologies, science, fiction and myth, and their links between the human and non-human worlds. At the UVA School of Engineering she teaches courses in “Engineering Ethics” and “Ethics and the Grand Challenges of Engineering.” At the Darden School of Business she taught “Business Ethics.” Berne is particularly interested in the impacts of engineering on planetary life and humanity. Her publications include five books: Nanotalk: Conversations with Scientists and Engineers about Ethics, Meaning and Belief in the Development of Nanotechnology (2006); Creating Life from Life: Biotechnology and Science Fiction (2014); Waiting in the Silence (2012)-- a science fiction novel; and two award-winning books about her work as an equine empath, published in the body-mind-spirit genre: When the Horses Whisper (2013) and Waking to Beauty (2016). She has also authored numerous conference papers, speeches, and academic journal articles.
