The email read: “Genomania is a documentary produced by Paragon Media, a nonprofit media organization in Oakland, California. The film is a work-in-progress, and focuses on genetic and biological determinism in the 20th century to today through a mixture of archival footage and interviews with prominent biologists, social scientists, bioethicists and others. The film presents a detailed look at the role biological determinism has played in the way we view ourselves, as well as social policies. It also examines the ideological roots of biological determinism. Producer/director Stephanie Welch will present short clips of the film for discussion.”
So register now and come check it out! It is a great follow-up to SEBS’ Bioethics Discussion and GATTACA Screening held last November…and sign up for future science/humanities bridging events on the CSSR website.
