Angela Saini: Race, Gender and Power

Organized by the University of Birmingham

Racial categories feel tangible. Arbitrarily invented by Enlightenment scientists who were affected by the politics of their time, many racially motivated myths continue to live on today. Even well-intentioned scientists, through their use of old-fashioned categories, inappropriately invoke these false ideas and perpetuate biological essentialism.

Angela Saini is an award-winning British science journalist and broadcaster. She presents science programmes on the BBC, and her writing has appeared in New Scientist, The Sunday Times, National Geographic and Wired. Her latest book, "Superior: the Return of Race Science", was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize and named a book of the year by The Telegraph, Nature and Financial Times. Her previous book, "Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong", has been translated into thirteen languages. Angela has a Masters in Engineering from the University of Oxford and was a Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
