Navigating Ethical Landscapes Symposium
On the 29th March 2023, the Identity and Marginalised Communities research cluster and iHuman held a hybrid symposium on 'Navigating Ethical Landscapes', organised by Dr Antonios Ktenidis.
This symposium was an invitation to think beyond institutional ethics and consider the various ethical landscapes researchers navigate. The presentations covered a lot of ethical ground, including:
Co-production and participatory ethics
The programme was as following:
9.00-09.10am: Introductions (Antonios Ktenidis)
09.10-09.40am: The NHS ethics journey (Louise Cooper)
09.40-10.10am Co-production and Disability Research Ethics: Reflections from Living Life to the Fullest and Reimagining TAS with Disabled Young People (Lauren White, Kirsty Liddiard, Dan Goodley)

Attendees (both online and in person) noted the welcoming and collegial atmosphere of the event, its interdisciplinarity, the attention to issues of access, the thought-provoking presentations, and its 'humane-ness'!
How we understand being ‘human’ differs between disciplines and has changed radically over time. We are living in an age marked by rapid growth in knowledge about the human body and brain, and new technologies with the potential to change them.
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
