Who’s Black and Why? The 18th Century Origins of Race Biology

Common Hour - Who’s Black and Why? The 18th Century Origins of Race Biology

Andrew Curran, William Armstrong Professor of the Humanities at Wesleyan University, describes the founding event of "race science" in 18th century c. Enlightenment France. Curran's eye-opening use of history sheds light on much of what we might take for granted as "scientific views" of human racial differences. 

This event is sponsored by: Miller Humanities Fund, DEI Office, Africana Studies Program, Brooks College House
