Scientific Racism: Is This an Oxymoron? (Fairfax County Public Library) – VIRTUAL
August 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Despite efforts by anthropologists and biologists to temper the application of race labeling, it continues to thrive. What’s wrong and what’s right with the concept of race? Why does our society crave race categories? How do people confuse the recent use of DNA-based labeling systems with the scientific reality of race? Presented by Mary McCutcheon, professor of anthropology at George Mason University from 1988 to 2004.
Registration is required.
