The Reilly Center helps students explore the ethics of future technologies.
For the last 5 years, we've released an annual Top 10 List of Ethical Dilemmas and Policy Issues in Science and Technology that's been consulted tens of thousands of times by students and teachers at both the high school and college levels.
Here are just a few places where you might have heard about the list:
In addition to posting and maintaining our list at reillytop10.com, the Center offers students opportunities to contribute to it and learn more about exploring the ethics of all future technologies.
This fall, the Center will offer undergraduates two ways to participate in the project:
- Work-study position: We are looking for motivated work-study students who are interested in the intersection of science/technology and the humanities to help with the list. The position will involve research, reading, and web updates. Interested students should contact Tori Davies at email@example.com. Student schedules can be flexible, but assistants will be expected to work in November and organize their course work and study accordingly.
- A new 1-credit course/research practicum called Man and Machine (STV 20089) for Notre Dame undergraduates to explore the history of science, the ethics of future tech, and to highlight the integral role of the humanities in science and technology. We encourage students from both the sciences and the humanities to enroll, especially those interested in science communication, the future of medicine, curriculum development, law, engineering, and the history and philosophy of science.
