Dr. Dorothy Roberts Keynote: Race, Science, and Justice

Dr. Dorothy Roberts Keynote: Race, Science, and Justice

This keynote focuses on collaborations between biological and social
scientists that seek to link social outcomes to biological processes such as
genetics, epigenetics, and brain function. Even some researchers who
study the impact of social inequality on biological outcomes have explained
racial and other social disadvantages in biological terms. Roberts examines
how many of the biological and social scientists developing a new racial
science neglect to take account of structural inequities. They elide the
political implications of their research by distinguishing their objectivity
and socially beneficial aims from scientific racism of the past.
