4:30 PM - 6:30 PM'Tracking Ghosts: Hauntings from a Eugenic Past'

Location: 1911 Building, Room 129

What do morning glory flowers or alien plant and animal species have to do with the histories of gender, race or eugenics? In this talk, Banu Subramaniam will trace the genealogies of ecology and evolutionary biology to demonstrate how ideas of "variation" in biology are connected to ideas of "diversity" and "difference" in the humanities. Exemplifying interdisciplinary work across the humanities and natural and social sciences, this talk explores how histories of gender and race shape contemporary biological theories. Banu Subramaniam is a professor of women, gender, and sexuality studies at the University of Mass-Amherst. Sponsored by the NC State Women's and Gender Studies Program in Interdisciplinary Studies.
