HomePuericulture, Biotypology and "Latin" Eugenics in Comparative Context

*  *  *

Published on Friday, April 06, 2012


This One-day Workshop is organised by the History of Race and Eugenics (HRE) Research Group Oxford Brookes University. The study of eugenics and race is currently undergoing a remarkable transformation - one defined by society's need to engage with scientific advances and the ethical dilemmas they raise on the one hand, and the investigation of hitherto neglected case studies on the other. The inclusion and juxtaposition of national and international histories of race and eugenics lies at the heart of this international collaboration that strives to not only yield original and timely research on these neglected national case studies, but to redefine and diversify the overarching debates on these particularly turbulent periods of modern history.
