Jenny Reardon, “The Postgenomic Condition: Meaning and Justice After the Genome”
November 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Jenny 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.
Dr. Reardon is a Professor of Sociology and the Founding Director of the Science and Justice Research Center at the UC Santa Cruz.
