Gil Eyal, Sociology – Columbia University
This academic year CRE2 is inaugurating a partnership with Northwestern University’s Program in Science in Human Culture (SHC) to co-sponsor a series of research exchanges, public panels, and scholarly presentations that focus on the intersections of race, science, and medicine. Through this partnership, members of both institutions will have opportunities to participate in events in the series that explore questions surrounding the production of scientific knowledge across the Americas, including institutional barriers, “gatekeeping,” and the construction of expertise; genomics, genetics, and understandings of race; and the roles of science in society in the present and past. This event is part of the Klopsteg Lecture series at Northwestern University.
Registration details forthcoming.
