The Public Philosophy Network (PPN) is collaborating with the Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State in the webcast of the institute’s Food Ethics Lecture Series 2011-12.  Through this collaboration we hope to generate an active discussion on PPN addressing issues in food ethics, and to encourage a diverse audience to join PPN and its Food Ethics Affinity Group.

The lecture series explores some of the most compelling issues in food ethics today—from the agrarian tradition to industrial farming, from the ethics of nutrigenomics to food safety and food security, from fish in pain to the fish on your plate.  This course of eight distinct but interrelated lectures is—like any good meal—designed to leave the audience both satisfied and wanting more.  The lectures can be viewed live on the web, and questions can be submitted in real time to the speakers.  For a list of all the lectures, please go to:  http://rockethics.psu.edu/bioethics/events/food1112.shtml

The first lecture is by Paul B. Thompson W. K. Kellogg Professor of Agricultural, Food and Community Ethics, Michigan State University, and will be webcast live on Monday, August 29 at 3 – 4:30pm EDT:  "What Makes Food Good? The Terrain of Food Ethics and the Agrarian Tradition."  To view the lecture live, go to http://live.libraries.psu.edu/mediasite/Viewer/?peid=e4b17c21e9f144...         No advance registration is required.  If you are not already a member of the Food Ethics Affinity group and would like to take part in discussions there (e.g., Paul Thompson will be posting beginning this Sunday), log-on to your PPN account and click on the affinity group to join.

Members of the PPN Food Ethics Affinity group will automatically receive e-mail notices of upcoming lectures.  If you do not want to join the discussion but would like to receive reminders by email of the forthcoming lectures in the Food Ethics Lecture series, please email rockfoodethics@gmail.com
