Jacob Metcalf: “Meet Shmeat: Animal Biotechnologies and the Philosophical Tensions of the New Food Movements”

Doctor Metcalf is the Postdoctoral Fellow in an NSF-funded program training graduate students in interdisciplinary inquiry on the co-constitution of ethics and scientific knowledge. His research concerns the construction of ethical inquiry. He proposes new applied ethics methodologies that account for the boundaries drawn within techno-scientific apparatuses, and asks how science and technology might become more responsive to the conditions and consequences of those boundaries.
