May 30 | WiSE’s Science on Tap | The Postgenomic Condition

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

7:30 PM

The Crepe Place: 1134 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95062

SJRC Director and Sociology Professor Jenny Reardon will discuss with us her new book, The Postgenomic Condition: Ethics, Justice & Knowledge After the Genome. Reardon’s research draws into focus questions about identity, justice and democracy that are often silently embedded in scientific ideas and practices, particularly in modern genomic research. Her training spans molecular biology, the history of biology, science studies, feminist and critical race studies, and the sociology of science, technology and medicine.

Science on Tap is designed to connect the Santa Cruz community to the latest research at U.C. Santa Cruz.  It is not exclusive for scientists and science majors and aims to appeal to all audiences. So come, grab a drink and meal, relax and hear some interesting cutting edge science that’s happening near you!

Science on Tap is generally on the last Wednesday of every month at the Crepe Place. Due to the popularity of these events, to ensure that you’ll have a seat, we highly recommend that you reserve a table by calling the Crepe Place at (831) 429-6994. More information can be found on their website at: http://thecrepeplace.com/.

Jenny Reardon is a Professor of Sociology and the Founding Director of the Science and Justice Research Center at the UC Santa Cruz.
