Imagining Genetic Enhancement

Produced by Dr. Everett Hamner (e-hamner@wiu.edu) and members of the WIU-QC ENG 400G Spring 2009 course, "Topics in Literature: Genetics, Ethics, and Narrative"

Imagining Genetic Enhancement is a 15-minute documentary film that aims to entertainingly and responsibly introduce key ethical questions about stem cell research, genetic testing, curing and preventing disease, cloning, and genetic enhancement. It does so through the lenses of both literature and cinema, inviting a conversation between the humanities and the sciences that works in both directions.
