The Glasscock Center is honored to welcome distinguished scholar Dorothy Roberts (University of Pennsylvania) for a major public lecture entitled “Race, Science, and Justice” on November 14th. Her pathbreaking work in law and public policy focuses on urgent contemporary issues in health, social justice, and bioethics, especially as they impact the lives of women, children and African Americans. Her books include Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-first Century (2011); Shattered Bonds: The Color of Child Welfare (2002), and Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty (1997). The event is part of our Global Health Humanities initiative and co-hosted by the Humanities Research Center at Rice University.
