From 21-26 August 2017, a one-week workshop on ethical issues affecting families in health and social care, will be held in the Dutch university town of Groningen. The workshop, “What About the Family?” is primarily intended for graduate students and early career researchers in bioethics, the medical humanities, critical family studies, and cognate fields. This is a “European Summerschool,” one of a number of programs run throughout Europe annually. It will allow post grads and scholars early in their careers to work with experienced figures in their areas of interest drawn from across the continent and the world. Summerschool faculty include Marian Verkerk (Groningen University), Jackie Leach Scully (Newcastle University), Simon Woods (Newcastle University), Jamie Nelson (Michigan State University), Hilde Lindemann (emerita Michigan State University), Ulrik Kihlbom (Uppsala University), Veerle Provoost (Ghent University), Kristin Zeiler (Linköping University), Christian Munthe (Göthenburg University), Dr. Katherina Beier, University of Göttingen; Dr. Sabine Woehlke, University of Göttingen.
