Lecture: Failure, Food Animals, and Laboratory Grown Meat

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The topic of technologically mediated meat production — in vitro meat—will be discussed by Wyatt Galusky, PhD in his lecture Technology as Responsibility: Failure, Food Animals, and Laboratory Grown Meat on February 21, 2018 at 7pm. Come to Kaplan Hall in the OBTC Great Room 101 to learn and ask questions about this present reality and the ramifications on human-animal relationships and humans interaction with the environment.
Dr. Galusky will explore how the more humans try to take responsibility for animals and the surrounding ecologies —“in terms of knowledge, in terms of energy—the more we require the environment to reflect our conditions and the less tolerant we become of failure.”
Wyatt Galusky is associate professor and chair of the Humanities Department and coordinator of the Science, Technology, & Society program at Morrisville State College. He also recently served as the Gretchen Hoadley Burke ’81 Endowed Chair in Regional Studies at Colgate University. He received his PhD in Science and Technology Studies from Virginia Tech. His research explores the various ways in which technologies mediate between humans and the natural world, including domesticated food animals and public engagement with science and technology.
This lecture is a selected offering of the Public Scholars program of Humanities NY. It is also presented by Cultural affairs in cooperation with Newburgh Urban Farming Fair. This evening talk is free and open to the public.
