Eugenics: Critical historical and ethical reflections

This afternoon workshop brings together historical and ethical perspectives on eugenics. It seeks to offer a more nuanced view of the concept than popular readings allow. It will critically assess the historical existence and ethical implications of eugenic practices in various national contexts from the twentieth century to the present day. Speakers will include Professor Alison Bashford, Dr Véronique Mottier, Professor Martin Richards, Professor Stephen Wilkinson, and Sophie Zadeh.

The workshop is the first to be held by the Gerard Duveen Social Sciences Society at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and is co-hosted by the Centre for Family Research, Cambridge.
