Come and have your understanding of race and identity challenged. We will chart the emergence of sociobiology in the late 19th Century, looking at the thinkers who applied biological ideas to the ‘social’ and we will explore the enduring impact of these ideas on how we talk about race and identity. We will also explore how our understandings of race are now challenged by new developments in the biological sciences. How can sociology and biology work together to make sense of what ‘race’ means in relation to concepts of ‘genetic identity’ in the 21st century?
