Peace Review is requesting articles on race and biogenetics:
Special Editors: Eduardo Mendieta & Lois Lorentzen, University of San Francisco
Deadline for Submissions: July 14, 2000
Will the twenty-first century be the century of hitherto unimagined transformations in which human beings control production, reproduction, and the development of life itself? Like never before, the aphorism "knowledge is power" means "power is knowledge." Biotechnology allows humans to manipulate genes, thus permitting us to re-arrange the grammar of life itself. Some claim that this "biotech century" may bring forth unthinkable horrors as we manipulate nature to suit the human will. Others claim that this new science may cure our diseases, feed our hungry, provide us with therapeutic drugs and alternative energy sources. Will the technologies of cloning, gene mapping, gene splicing, gene therapy, genetic modification of organisms, bring us to a bright age of ecotopian justice or to a dark eugenic dystopia?
In this special issue of Peace Review we invite essays on different aspects of Biopiracy and Biotechnology, including: 5) Social consequences of biotechnology. race relations, gene altering, genetic therapy and screening, abortion and genetic screening.
