DU Bioethics Debate Team Places 2nd in National Competition
On April 4-7, 2013, the philosophy department sent four DU philosophy majors to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. to compete in the Bioethics Bowl, a debate competition that is part of the National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference.
From left to right, DU's debate team consists of:
- Joe Davidson (Philosophy, Psychology)
- Angela Ott (Philosophy, Socio-Legal Studies)
- Nick Allen (Philosophy, Geography)
- Joel Lewis (Philosophy, English)
The DU team competed against fifteen other teams, including Columbia University, Georgetown University, Loyola University Chicago, Bowling Green State University, University of Alabama at Birmingham, University at Albany-SUNY, University of Baltimore, National Hispanic University, and Rutgers.
During the competition, Allen, Davidson, Lewis, and Ott debated their views on nuclear waste storage, global transplant tourism, international surrogacy, informed consent, adoption vs. in vitro fertilization, corporate responsibility, and geoengineering, along with several other compelling, contemporary bioethical issues.
Bioethics debate coach and Professor of Philosophy Candace Upton is very proud and is looking forward to next year's Bioethics Bowl, which will take place at Loyola University Chicago.
