ADAM RUTHERFORD AT HEFFERS

ADAM RUTHERFORD AT HEFFERS

Heffers Bookshop 20 Trinity Street Cambridge CB2 1TY
4th Feb 2020 6:30 pm
Join Dr Adam Rutherford, science writer and broadcaster, as he talks about his new book How To Argue With A Racist: a vital manifesto for a twenty-first century understanding of human evolution and variation, and a timely weapon against the misuse of science to justify bigotry. Race is real because we perceive it. Racism is real because we enact it. Neither race nor racism has foundation in science. But the appeal to science to strengthen racist ideologies is on the rise - and increasingly part of the public discourse on politics, migration, education, sport and intelligence. Stereotypes and myths about race are expressed not just by overt racists, but also by well-intentioned people whose experience and cultural baggage steers them towards views that are not supported by the modern study of human genetics. Even some scientists are uncomfortable expressing opinions deriving from their research where it relates to race. Yet, if understood correctly, science and history can be powerful allies against racism, granting the clearest view of how people actually are, rather than how we judge them to be. Tickets for the event are priced at £7 in advance or £8 on the door, and can be purchased through this page, by calling 01223 463200 or in person at Heffers bookshop.
