“Intellectual racism has always existed [...] [I]t is still the toxic little seed at the heart of academia. However dead you might think it is, it needs only a little water, and now it’s raining.” -- Angela Saini in Superior
Join us for a conversation with science journalist Angela Saini, author of 2019's Superior: The Return of Race Science…
...to examine how "race" arose as a tool of oppressive classification; how it has been given a veneer of scientific and intellectual respectability by bigoted pseudoscientists throughout the centuries; why and how racist pseudoscience has returned recently under the auspices of "intelligence studies", evolutionary psychology, & "race realism"; how such pseudoscience is used by contemporary white supremacists to justify their racism and build power; and how the thin intellectual veneer of racism contributes to inequality and prejudice in our academic institutions.
