The Ethics of War & Autonomous Weapons Systems
Merlin CCC is hosting two winter symposia regarding military life & the ethics of war. The discussions will take place at The Helena Avenue Theater, in conjunction with a live theater performance called “Grounded” by Raven’s Feather Productions (RFP). Starring local actress Katy Wright, “Grounded” is a monologue-style play that revolves around a female drone pilot as she struggles with the realities of combat & strife, at home and abroad.
The second of these symposia will be led by Major Hunter Cantrell, active duty member of the U.S. Army and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the U.S. Military Academy West Point. He will explore the ethics of war and autonomous weapons systems.. This symposium will involve a combination of presentation and discussion and will be structure in ways that allow for free-following conversation and questions. People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate. Community members do not need to see the live performance in order to participate or benefit from this conversation.
