Abstract:

In this talk, I report on some findings from my ethnography of four efforts to 'democratize' genomics, focusing in particular on the International Haplotype Map Project's effort to include research subjects in the design and regulation of the Project. I consider the conceptual and pragmatic problems encountered by this effort, and reflect on what these problems reveal about the limits of liberal democratic imaginaries in an age of emergent technoscience.
