Bastardizing Plato’s Cave: Embodiment and Urban Bioethics 

In this talk we’ll be exploring the possibilities for health equity work that are illuminated when we shine a bioethics lens into spaces and contexts that are dense, diverse, and laden with disparities. We’ll discuss turning our attention to the shadows caused by that light and ask what the shadows can teach us. Throughout, attention will center on the embodied experiences of the stakeholders and the social construction of the cave.
