Eugenics in California & the World: Race, Class, Gender/Sexuality, & Disability
This virtual symposium is part of ongoing national and international conversations on the influence of eugenics beliefs and practices across a multitude of private and public institutions, spaces, and places. Focusing specifically on the legacies of eugenics in California, this event brings together a diverse group of scholars, educators, students, activists, and community members to engage in dialogue exploring how state institutions of higher learning, health care, and government promoted, sustained, and mainstreamed eugenics via educational, medical, and public contexts.
