The Legacy of Race Science

Racism has been one of the most destructive influences on science and society over the last 200 years. While racism as a dominant political force was largely abolished after WWII, scientific myths about human difference live on today in disturbing ways. This event is a public lecture by Angela Saini and a subsequent panel discussion on the topic of ‘The Legacy of Race Science’. Angela Saini is an award-winning science journalist, author, and broadcaster. Her latest book, Superior: The Return of Race Science, was published last year and has become an international bestseller, receiving a substantial number of prizes.

The event will comprise of a 30 minute lecture and a panel discussion with experts from UWA: Muhammad Suleiman (UWA African Research & Engagement Centre), Len Collard (School of Indigenous Studies), Farida Fozda (Anthropology and Sociology) and Debra Judge (Human Biology & Anatomy). The panel will be moderated by Martin Porr (Archaeology).
