"Disciplining Eugenics: History, Philosophy, and HPS"
Eugenics has usually been studied as a historical phenomenon, perhaps one with lessons for present and future uses of science and technology. Here I want to raise some questions about the relationship of eugenics to both history and philosophy, drawing my experience working in constructing oral histories with survivors of Canadian eugenics over the past 10 years. This will allow us to discuss received views of eugenics, the enthusiasm for aspects of eugenics in the philosophical bioethics community, and some topics in the philosophy of disability.
5PM - Please join us for Drinks and Canapes to celebrate Georg's recent graduation and all our achievements.
