On September 18-21, 2017, the C:B faculty decamped to Emerald Isle,  NC,  for three days of intellectual engagement with each other’s work in progress.   Participants submitted manuscripts in advance and, after a “reading day” on Thursday, spent Friday and Saturday discussing each others’ papers – in between beach walks, collaborative cooking, and ill-advised attempts at surfing.  In addition to Center faculty, three guests enlivened the experience:  Maria Merritt, Ph.D., from the Berman Institute for Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University, Carl Elliott, Ph.D., from the U. of Minnesota Center for Bioethics,  and Chris Simon, Ph.D., from the Trent Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities at Duke University.  Special thanks go to Rebecca Walker, who was the driving force behind this unique event.
