Part of our yearlong Difference in Dialogue series, this panel discussion features Dr. James Grifo (Program Director of the NYU Langone Fertility Center since 1995 and Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the NYU School of Medicine), Josephine Johnston (a New Zealand-trained lawyer with a master's degree in bioethics and health law), and Laura Hercher MS '01 (Director of Student Research in the Joan H. Marks Graduate Program in Human Genetics). Almost 2% of babies born in the United States today begin as embryos conceived in the lab via IVF. The growth of reproductive medicine has benefited millions and its potential continues to expand as new techniques and new technology make it increasingly possible to preserve and extend fertility, and to pick and choose between embryos. Are these the "designer babies" we've been worrying about? Our panelists contemplate the effect of IVF and preimplantation testing on those who use it, and on those who don't.

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Please join us in Portland for a lively discussion of Maggie Nelson's genre-bending memoir "The Argonauts." The discussion will be led by writer Matthew Schwartz '99. We will examine the main themes and stylistic elements of this uniquely radical book, which subverts literary and cultural expectations at every turn and manages to balance a memoir's intimacy with a challenging, fiercely feminist cultural critique. Please come prepared with a favorite passage from the book to share with the group. Hosted by Geogia Lee Hussey '01 (address will be provided upon registration). Refreshments will be served.
