Dorothy Roberts Lecture: “Fatal Invention: The New Biopolitics of Race”
October 23, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
This month, Dorothy Roberts will be at McMaster University to give a lecture titled “Fatal Invention: The New Biopolitics of Race.”
In this talk, Roberts will examine how the myth of the biological concept of race – revived by purportedly cutting-edge science, race-specific drugs, genetic testing, and DNA databases – continues to undermine a just society and promote inequality in a supposedly “post-racial” era.
Presented by the Bourns Lectureship in Bioethics and the McMaster Centre for Scholarship in the Public Interest, this talk will take place on October 23, 2014 from 7:00-9:00 pm in CIBC Hall, located on the third floor of the McMaster University Student Center (MUSC), room 319. Admission is free, refreshments will be served, and all are welcome.
