The series continues to evolve, and of course has a whole new level of relevance, and we are keen to share with you further later in the summer. In the meanwhile though take care of yourselves and loved ones and the best of luck and wishes through these challenging times.

A cross-institutional and inter-disciplinary series of presentations and workshops exploring the history and continuing influences of the development of eugenics.
The location of this series of events being focused around Bloomsbury emphasises the historic role of the University of London, in the development and promotion of eugenics and in ongoing discussions of how we address this legacy today. The series will explore the interaction of disability with religion, social class, race, gender, sexual orientation, etc., highlighting reflections and lessons for us all. Current social, political and scientific developments make consideration of and education around these themes more urgent than ever. Recognition of the origins of some extreme practices of eugenics in subtle shifts of emphasis and interpretation gives the series its title and warning.
