In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Stephen Hilgartner, professor in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Cornell University, will present his book, Reordering Life: Knowledge and Control in the Genomics Revolution (MIT Press, 2017).
Hilgartner’s research focuses on situations in which scientific knowledge is implicated in establishing, contesting, and maintaining social order. He will discuss the “genomics revolution” and how the regimes governing biological research have changed, including issues about secrecy in science, data access and ownership, and the politics of research communities.
Light refreshments served.
