Ethics@Noon Lecture Series

Drawing on the talented cohort of faculty who affiliate with our Center, the Ethics @ Noon lecture series provides the broader ASU community an opportunity to see how applied ethics is practiced across the disciplines. For the fall 2017 semester, we will be moving the presentations online to reach an even broader audience.

Applied Ethics Dimension

Ethics infuses research at every stage, from inception and planning to dissemination and broader impact. Ethics @ Noon demonstrates the breadth and depth of those applied ethics as it interfaces with the research conducted by our affiliated faculty across the University. 

Project Description

Conversations from academic year 2016-2017: "Comparative Genocide Testimony Project," "The Dark Side of Performance Goals," "Why Pro-Choicers Should Take Pro-Life Concerns Seriously," "Engineering Empathy and Ethics," "Moral Injury and Modern Conflict," "Diagnosing the Health of Urban Populations," "Black Lives Matter and the Moral Authority of the Righteous," "Art and Ecology at ASU," "Ethical Challenges and Professional Conduct"


Attendees are exposed to the embedded, interdisciplinary breadth of applied ethics research across the University. Presenters gain feedback from a broad cross-section of attendees that vary in field of practice and educational level, ensuring that their ideas benefit from the robust feedback of Univeristy peers.

Student Engagement

By drawing from faculty mentors across the University, these lectures provide students at the university with a traditional brownbag experience. Students who attend Ethics @ Noon programming are able to chat with thought leaders in their field, and gain a more nuanced understanding of the real-world challenges inherent in their chosen discipline.
