If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matt McGeehan.

This presentation will examine how historically specific ideas of “race”, ability, gender and class became “scientific truths”. I will also examine the legacies and contemporary implications of having the “respectability” and “objectivity” of science behind racist beliefs. In turn, this presentation will examine how these seemingly or assumed scientific truths slip in contemporary academic, cultural, social, and nationalistic understandings of science, medicine, and politics. I will use examples from different settings and contexts with a special focus on the Americas.
