Nadia Abu El-Haj - Seminar Series 2010-2011

Mon, January 24, 2011 | SAC 5.118

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

“An Epismtemology of the Self:  Genetic Markers of (Jewish) Origins”

This paper discusses the specific biological-historical imagination of contemporary projects in genetic history. It explores, first, the assumptions and forms of evidence through which this contemporary science departs from race science and second, through a discussion of ancestry testing companies, it considers its effects in larger domains of cultural practice.

A light lunch will be served.
