International workshop "Heredity in the Century of the Gene (A Cultural History of Heredity IV)"
VenueReed Hall, University of Exeter
Sponsored by the British Academy
The ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society, University of Exeter, and the Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, jointly organized a workshop " Heredity in the Century of the Gene (A Cultural History of Heredity IV)". This workshop, which took place at the University of Exeter December 11-14 2006, is part of a series of workshops forming the backbone of a long term research project on the cultural history of heredity. The project aims to uncover the technical, juridical, medical, and scientific practices in which the knowledge of inheritance was historically anchored in different epochs and to understand the genesis of today’s naturalistic concept of heredity.
