CaptureThe American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) holds its annual meeting Oct. 24-27, 2013, in Atlanta.

The theme for the 2013 ASBH meeting, “Tradition, Innovation and Moral Courage,” encourages participants to respond to the ways bioethics and the health humanities are inspired and shaped by various moral traditions, beliefs, and methodological approaches, as well as how these very traditions and practices become the foci of contemporary bioethical and humanities work bearing on moral progress and moral “innovation.”  This year’s ASBH theme invites members to reflect on the dialectic among moral traditions, moral inquiry, and moral innovation, and the ways that cultures identifying themselves as morally progressive might conceptualize the meaning and role of moral courage in realizing that progress.
