About this event
This is an interactive symposium that explores the history of reproductive control, social justice, Indigenous sterilizations, and eugenics.

September 2021 marks 100 years of the Second International Eugenics Congress. Like our predecessors a century ago, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment in the history of eugenics and genetics, where new technologies and biological interventions could well determine the ethical standards of tomorrow. COVID-19 has reminded us that eugenic ideas persist when it comes to prioritizing health-care needs and vaccines around the globe.
