It gives us great pleasure to invite you to Professor Williams’ Inaugural Lecture. This is one of a series of lectures held each year, which help raise the profile of our Professors and also offer an opportunity for work and research in their specialist field to be made available to a wide and varied audience.

Professor Williams, Professor of Medical Sociology in the School of Social Sciences will deliver her Inaugural Lecture entitled “Born This Way? Selective reproduction and new medical technologies” on Thursday 27 February in the Eastern Gateway Building Auditorium. The lecture starts at 5.30pm and will open with a welcome speech from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Julia Buckingham, and will conclude with light refreshments.

Lecture Abstract
Gandhi stated that civilisation is the encouragement of differences. What, therefore, might be the effect of the increasing use of reproductive technologies which prevent or enable the birth of particular kinds of children? This research area poses a number of fascinating questions including the influence of religion, culture and the law on debates about the sorts of children we want born, and the societies that they will be born into. In this lecture, Professor Williams will discuss these and other new medical technologies, reflecting on their consequences – both intended and unintended.
