new exhibit examines race and proof
Academic year 2012-2013 is the Year of Proof here at Penn, and to celebrate, the Penn Museum has unveiled a new exhibit co-curated by Dr. Janet Monge, "Masking and Unmasking Race". The exhibit asks the question: Is there such a thing in humans called race? Check it out at the Penn Museum now through August 18th.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Dr. Monge, along with Dr. Geoffrey Aguirre of Penn's Neurology Department will be giving a talk on October 4th entitled "From Skulls to Scans: How Brain Measurements Have Been Used, Misused, and Misunderstood in the Study of Racial Differences". The talk will be held at 4:30 in the Nevil Gallery. Read more here.
