April 11, 2023

Two Slippery Rock University professors organized a panel at the American Association for the Advancement of Science Annual Meeting, last month in Washington, D.C. Jana Asher, an associate professor of mathematics and statistics, and Mark Shotwell, an associate professor of biology, co-organized a panel titled “Reconciling Ourselves to the Effect of Eugenics on Science,” which discussed connection between the eugenics movement and modern scientific practice.

The AAAS is the world’s largest multidisciplinary science society, and its annual meeting is attended by thousands of scientists, educators, policymakers and journalists to discuss cutting-edge developments in science, technology and policy.
