Three Events in Edmonton on Disability and Eugenics

This week in Edmonton The What Sorts Network is holding three public events around the themes of disability and eugenics that follow up two earlier conferences / workshops (Eugenics and Sterilization in Alberta: 35 Years Later in April 2007, and Understanding Human Variation in September 2007). All events are free, and everyone is welcome.

PUBLIC DIALOGUE, Thursday, 23rd October, 7-9pm: The Pursuit of Modern Perfection: Defining Who is Worthy of Life

PUBLIC WORKSHOP, Friday, 24th October 8.30am – 4.00pm: Families and Memory

PUBLIC SYMPOSIUM, Saturday, 25th October 1.30 – 4.30pm: Philosophy, Eugenics, and Disability in Alberta and Places North

Each of these event is cosponsored: the first with the Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) and its Alberta branch (AACL); the second with AACL and Neighborhood Bridges; and the third with the Western Canadian Philosophical Association. To help plan for refreshments, we have (free) registration for the Friday event. Check out the links if you’re interested. Much within these events will (eventually) be podcast–details to follow at this blog and at the What Sorts Network website, where you get information about the previous conferences and workshops and hear podcasts of many of the talks.
