John Perkins Center Forum - Bruce Hevly from UW
Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 20, 1:00 p.m., Demaray Hall 150, for this special event! "Lumpers and Splitters: Racialist Thought in Early American Science" The history of science in British North America and the early U.S. may be studied with questions of broader significance in mind. For example, "Who counts as an American?"--a question interwined with scientific and political meanings, and "How are political questions elided by recasting them as scientific questions?" This presentation will draw on examples from Thomas Jefferson's "Notes on the State of Virginia" (1785) and other racial science episodes before 1850 to argue that the taxonomic question of lumping versus splitting can be used to organize our thinking about such broad questions in the context of an undergraduate survey course. Interested in some reading to prepare for the discussion? Send your email request to Max Hunter at huntem1@spu.edu.
