June, 28th 2021 – The XIX Bioethics Summer Course, organized by the School of Bioethics of the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, will begin on July 2nd.
It will offer an interdisciplinary study on ” Bioethics and Consciousness: an interdisciplinary and interreligious reflection on an essential dimension of the human person“, that will give its participants the competencies necessary to discern critically the varied contemporary contexts in which consciousness is invoked, in order to evaluate critically clinical protocols, proposed laws, sanitary applications, and the political, economic, and social implications of the theme.
The Course, open to all, is of particular interest to social workers; doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists, administrator and managers; educators and professors; priests, religious, catechists and other pastoral agents; lawyers and jurists; politicians; journalists, communicators and sociologists, as well as those who are interested in the cultural and social dynamics of our globalized world and wish to have prudent, informed and critical criteria on global, bioethical and social issues relating to public health issues of international interest.
The four meetings are structured in lectures, question and answer sessions, seminars, forums, films, and interactive group activities. Professors of the Institute of Bioethics and Human Rights and other experts, such as Matilde Leonardi, Benedetto Farina, Luisa Zecchinelli and Claudio Imperatori, will participate as speakers and moderators of the group dynamics.
At the end of each course, students will take a test.
Date: July 2-3 and July 9-10, from 3:30pm to 6:30pm Rome time, 9:30-12:30am New York time.
