Upcoming event at CUAG: DOUBLE MAJOR: November Edition
Food Addictions + Global Surrogacy
Tuesday, 12 November 2013, 7:00 p.m.
Join us for the third installment of CUAG’s lecture series DOUBLE MAJOR, where we’ll hear from two passionate experts, each speaking for 20 minutes about their subject, after which there will be a Q&A addressing both topics. One speaker is from the Ottawa-Gatineau community, and one is from the Carleton community. DOUBLE MAJOR is a fun and friendly way to stimulate discussion of seemingly disparate topics, and to make new connections between people and ideas. Props encouraged!
Food Addictions (Cindy Deachman) and Global Surrogacy (Vida Panitch)
DOUBLE MAJOR is held at CUAG. Lectures start at 7pm.
DOUBLE MAJOR is brought to you by Carleton University Art Gallery and the Carleton University Alumni Association.
Cindy Deachman has been writing for almost twenty years now. Her work has appeared in various magazines and newspapers—Ottawa Magazine, Carleton University Magazine, and University Affairs, amongst others. From 2001-2003, she published Burnt Toast, a magazine about food, science, and art.
Vida Panitch’s research interests lie in the areas of distributive justice and bioethics. Her work explores the extent to which the concepts of equality, exploitation, and commodification can serve as normative guides to the just distribution of health-related goods and services, both domestically and internationally. While her doctoral work (completed at the University of Toronto in 2008) addressed the normative foundations of liberal welfare programs geared to basic need satisfaction (including the need for health), her current work examines the moral permissibility of emerging commercial health practices.
