It’s often been noted by critics that for better or worse, and whether deliberately or not, the best genre films reflect their era and cultural environment.

The Center for Ethics in Science and Technology presents Exploring Ethics, a series of lectures and discussions designed to bring the public and scientists together to explore how science can best serve society. These programs provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to share perspectives on the ethical implications of new developments in science and technology.
