WHAT: Racism, Not Race: Answers to Questions Even a Skeptic Might Ask
Racism created race.  The socially defined racial groups we currently experience did not result from an objective examination of human biological variation.  This talk recounts the study of biological variation and its connection to race concepts within the Western world from its roots in Christian special creationism to modern evolutionary ideas.  It will end with a discussion of why anti-racism in science is now more than ever necessary to improve the modern scientific enterprise.
