Lecture on Science and Society

Who should care about how and why mice are used in scientific research? What are the practical, political and ethical issues behind the creation and use of laboratory mice? What lessons can we learn for future relationships between science and society from the use of mice in biomedical research? Karen Rader, Sarah Lawrence Faculty member and first holder of the Marilyn Simpson Chair in Science, Technology and Society, will explore these questions in a lecture titled "The Mouse's Tale: Standardized Animals in the Culture and Practice of Technoscience."

The lecture will be given on Tuesday, October 26, in Titsworth Lecture Hall, at 6:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For information please call 395-2411.
