2nd Annual ND HPSTV Graduate Conference
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Systemic racism has received growing attention in both American politics and academic scholarship. One key historical aspect of American racism is the role science has played in reifying racial difference, establishing asymmetric social orders, and obstructing the realization of social justice efforts. The 2nd Annual HPSTV Graduate Conference serves as an academic event to discuss these important issues.
We invite graduate student submissions from humanists whose work relates to critical race theory or the sciences (e.g. history and/or philosophy of science, science and technology studies) as well as natural or social scientists. Interdisciplinary, theory, and practice oriented approaches are welcome. Some appropriate topics of interest might include (but are certainly not limited to): the ways in which systemic racism affects scientific practice (either from an historical or contemporary perspective), the nature of the scientific concept of race and its function in wider domains of social and political activity, the role of epistemic injustices in perpetuating harms to communities of color (within the context of scientific matters), and the relevance and importance of empirical evidence in achieving certain social justice goals.
This is a student event (e.g. a graduate conference).
