May 30 @ 7:30pm

Free: In the garden

7:30 PM

Jenny Reardon, Professor of Sociology and the Founding Director of the Science and Justice Research Center, UC Santa Cruz

SJRC Director and Sociology Professor Jenny Reardon will discuss with us her new book, The Postgenomic Condition: Ethics, Justice & Knowledge After the Genome. Reardon’s research draws into focus questions about identity, justice and democracy that are often silently embedded in scientific ideas and practices, particularly in modern genomic research. Her training spans molecular biology, the history of biology, science studies, feminist and critical race studies, and the sociology of science, technology and medicine.
