January 21, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$5

Twisted Data _ERO installation1

Moderator: Nickie Phillips

Panelists: Noah Fuller, Geraldine Ondrizek, Barbara Rosenthal

This panel will explore the legacy of Eugenics and the ways that “scientific” data has been used to justify atrocities. The panelists will discuss how the categorization of individuals, dehumanization, and bureaucratization converged to reinforce cultural prejudices and the lasting impact of these policies and practices. The study and reception of bio-criminological explanations of criminality will be discussed in light of the history of eugenics within the field of criminology, as well as other unfortunate implications of the movement to “purify” the population.
