- Virtually, contact [email protected] for link
In an era when Covid-19 is described by some as “the China Disease” and discourses about emerging vaccines too easily ignore the dark legacy of scientific practice in the U.S., this talk offered by Dr. Natalie Scheidler, professor of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at MSU, will discuss the ways in which scientific and medical communities have historically constructed the corporal body. Moreover, the talk will address the ways in which feminist, queer, and racial justice movements have challenged Eugenics, Population Control, Immigration Reform, and the knowledge production that supports them.
