Crossing Cultures of Expertise and Tradition:
Opportunities and Challenges in Cultivating Indigenous Scientists
Wednesday May 20th, 2015

4:00-6:00PM

Engineering 2, room 599

Kim TallBear (University of Texas, Austin) will join us to discuss how genomics is co-constituted along with ideas of race and indigeneity (the topic of her 2013 monograph, Native American DNA) and the novel roles that Native geneticists are playing in intervening in these processes to create a more just and democratic approach to genomics.

Co-Sponsored by the UCSC Genomics Institute and the Center for Biomolecular Sciences and Engineering
