<div><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Part science and part social movement, eugenics emerged in the late nineteenth century as a tool for human improvement. In response to perceived threats of criminality, moral degeneration, feeble-mindedness,
 and “the rising tide of color,” eugenic laws and social policies aimed to better the human race by regulating reproductive choice through science and technology. In his new book The Eugenic Mind Project, Rob Wilson examines eugenic thought and practice — from
 forced sterilization to prenatal screening — drawing on his experience working with eugenics survivors. </span></div>

 past and those confronted by the legacy of eugenic thinking today.  By doing so, he brings eugenics from the distant past to the ongoing present. In this symposium Australian scholars offer their perspective on eugenics, its history and its contemporary relevance.</font></div>
