LAW 7252

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

What is the law's relationship to biotechnology and bioengineering? How have advances in science impacted legal definitions of "personhood," "property," "rights," and other core attributes of human-ness, and how has the law responded to these developments, especially in the midst of global climate change? This seminar will examine a series of science fiction texts in order to wrestle with such questions. Our materials will include novels (Octavia Butler's Dawn, Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go) and films and television serials (Bladerunner, Orphan Black), which we'll analyze alongside excerpts from specific legal decisions (Roe v Wade, Moore v UCLA).

When Offered Fall or Spring.
