Pamela L. Geller, PhD
University of Miami Department of Anthropology 

In this dialogue, and with the aim of developing the concept bioethos, Dr. Geller outlined the historic connection between biomedicine and bioarchaeology. The former clearly has had a commitment to advancing discussions about bioethics. Such has not been the case for the latter, a neglect that practitioners are now rectifying. Conversations in bioethics—about consent, anonymity, vulnerable populations, legislation and policy, etc.—are germane, but require expansion so as to be useful for particular aspects of studying archaeologically contextualized human remains.
