IEET > Affiliate Scholar > Patrick Hopkins

Patrick Hopkins

Patrick D. Hopkins, an Affiliate Scholar of the IEET, is a philosopher and ethicist who combines a life-long love of science fiction with academic scholarship on very real-world issues of science and technology. After receiving a B.A. in experimental psychology from the University of Mississippi, he worked as a research assistant at the Yerkes Primate Research Center in Atlanta and later in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Tennessee in Memphis.

While still enamored of science, Hopkins decided he was better suited for studying the cultural, moral, and theological dimensions of science and technology rather than actually doing scientific research. He received his Ph.D. in Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis and had a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Applied Ethics at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He now teaches at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi.

Professor Hopkins has published a number of articles on biomedical ethics, science and technology studies, gender studies, and religious studies. He has edited a book on gender and technology, Sex/Machine: Readings in Culture, Gender, and Technology, and is currently working on a companion volume focusing on race, ethnicity, and technology as well as a book on the relationship between technology and “nature.”
