Interview with Françoise Baylis

Françoise Baylis, joins Camisha Russell (Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Oregon and Co-Editor in Chief at Hypatia) and Caroline Lundquist (University of Oregon Ethics Instructor and Co-Managing Editor of Hypatia) as the 2020-21 Wayne Morse Chair. Dr. Baylis is a bioethicist and university research professor at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia.  A philosopher whose innovative research in bioethics lies at the intersection of policy and practice, she challenges readers to think broadly and deeply about the direction of health, science and biotechnology. Her work aims to move the limits of mainstream bioethics and develop more effective ways to understand and tackle public policy challenge. These goals are nowhere more evident than in her 2019 book, Altered Inheritance: CRSISPR and the Ethics of Human Genome Editing, published by Harvard University Press.

Along with the interview, we offer the following eight articles on feminist bioethics, reproduction, and genetics, free to download for a limited time.
