What is a person? How do we understand personhood? The Personhoods Initiative is a new research network sponsored by IHGC that brings together scholars interested in how we extend moral and legal recognition within and across ontologies, taking up questions of race, gender, sexuality, animality, environmental ethics, planthood, artificial intelligence, and bioethics.
