Dr. Little’s research is in bioethics as well as the metaphysics and epistemology of ethics. Her current work in analytic philosophy and feminist theory,  includes two large-scale collaborative projects: the “Second Wave” initiative addressing the responsible inclusion of pregnant women in clinical trials and the “Ob-Gyn Risk Research Group” addressing communication, perception and choices around risk in women’s reproductive lives.   

Using illustrative examples from clinical ethics, Dr. Little’s talk will describe differences between rights and obligations, on the one hand, and responsibilities on the other. 

Lunch will be provided. All are welcome.
