As a university associate professor of “Science, Technology and Society”, Rosalyn Berne studies and teaches about the role and function of the moral imagination, personal belief, mythology and metaphor in the pursuit of new technological developments. Seeing the capacity of science fiction to provoke reflection and stir the imagination, she both writes and teaches that genre. Her novel, Waiting in the Silence, explores human procreation, privacy, aging and spirituality in a world where novel technologies have emerged from the convergence of biotechnology, nanotechnology, information technologies and cognitive science. Its sequel, Walking on the Sea, is soon to be completed.
Rosalyn is also the non-fiction author of Nanotalk: Conversations with Scientists and Engineers about Ethics, Meaning and Belief in the Development of Nanotechnology (2005). Her newest book, Creating Life from Life: Biotechnology and Science Fiction (forthcoming summer 2014), combines non-fiction essays written by scientists about their fields in biotechnology, with science fiction short authored by Rosalyn and other contributors. When the Horses Whisper (2014) may represent her truest vocation—the study of interspecies communication, and sharing with other humans what animals have to teach us. For this, Rosalyn offers “Deep Listening” workshops and “equine-empath” services for horses and their human companions.
