Session 2 will continue where our first session on the 22nd September left off. It will take audiences from the past incarnations of eugenics across our four arching community threads across this conference (Vermont, Harvard, Yale and the Deaf community) that was the subject of our first session, through to an exploration into how these legacies of eugenics resurface and are remembered in these communities in our world today (schedule below). There will also be a special opening panel, looking at the deportation of the Malaga Island mixed-race community in 1912, and how this is remembered in Maine today. The subject matter of our third session on the 16th November, will then look into the future trajectories of these eugenics legacies upon these communities, and what it is we can do to disrupt these trajectories.
Schedule for Session 2 - 'Eugenic Presents', 19th Oct, 1-4pm...
