End Date: 11/14/2017End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description
Facial Allografts: Cosmetic surgery or whole organ transplant? Sharrona Pearl, PhD, will show how bioethicists, surgeons and journalists have conceptualized face transplants as neither and both, and the resulting stakes for each.


Pearl will also discuss the implications of the cosmetic frame and the whole organ frame for the bioethical debates around FAT, paying particular attention to the media coverage of Isabelle Dinoire’s partial facial allograft in 2005.

Event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be included.
