Victoria Pitts-Taylor

The Humanities Unbounded BrainCultures Lab and the Program in Literature present a seminar with Victoria Pitts-Taylor, Professor of Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies (FGSS), Sociology, and Science in Society at Wesleyan University.

Drawing from her recent book The Brain's Body: Neuroscience and Corporeal Politics (Duke University Press, 2017), and other related writings, Professor Pitts-Taylor will consider how racial and socio-economic inequality become inscribed within the language of neurobiological difference.

In preparation for the workshop, participants are asked to read three pre-circulated essays, which can be found here: https://duke.box.com/s/q2i6l85zglsbq8brd0kvpa9w098b0ku8.

A reception will follow.
