Control: the dark history and troubling present of eugenics

Control: the dark history and troubling present of eugenics

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 4th Feb 2022

 £17.03

Throughout history, people have sought to improve themselves, and society, by eliminating disease. They want to enhance desirable qualities in their children or control populations with rules about who can procreate and who can live.

Join Adam Rutherford as he discusses how new techniques in genetics and gene editing prompt the urgently needed discussions about improving the 'quality' of the population. And how the ideas underlying eugenics are not merely historical.

In this talk, Adam explores the science, history and future of eugenics, and the practice of population control by selective procreation.
