This Tuesday 11th June, CitiGen postdoc Sarah Abel will present a seminar paper at the University of Porto’s Department of Health and Society, entitled “Can DNA ancestry testing debunk racist ideologies?”

The presentation draws on Sarah’s work on the uses of DNA ancestry in the United States and Brazil, and examines the ways in which these technologies can be open to both racist and anti-racist uses.

The seminar is organised jointly by the Instituto de Saúde Pública da Universidade de Porto (ISPUP) and the EXCHANGE project.
