I am extremely excited to soon be joining my brilliant bioethicist friend and colleague, Brian Earp, at the Brocher Foundation in Geneva for a month long residency of researching and writing about male circumcision.
Our project, entitled "The Science, Politics, and Ethics of Male Circumcision: An Interdisciplinary Take on an Emerging Global Controversy," will involve our planning
and organising an academic conference on male circumcision featuring the leading researchers on this subject from ethics, history, law, medicine, religious studies, and
across the social and political
sciences. We hope that the output of this conference will form the basis
of an edited collection of essays on a range of circumcision-related
topics and debates.
For more information on the research we have planned during our joint residency, please see my researcher profile here.
