AEAW 2013: quick report and thanks

Well, Alberta Eugenics Awareness Week is over for another year.  Thanks to all of those who contributed and participated, and to Moyra Lang for pulling it all together.  Every event this year was very well attended, and we drew largely non-overlapping audiences for talks on eugenics and indigenous peoples, feminism, childhood, hippies, and more!  The world premiere of our “Surviving Eugenics in the 21st-Century: Our Stories Told” drew a full house of over 400 people to the Metro Cinema, and our other evening events, the Friday night screening of “Fixed: The Science / Fiction of Human Enhancement”, and the Tuesday night “Difference and Diversity” performance night, had healthy crowds of just under 100.  Thanks to our cosponsors–the Departments of Educational Policy Studies, Philosophy, Sociology, History and Classics, Rehabilitation Medicine, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Human Ecology, as well as the John Dossetor Health Ethics Centre and the Faculty of Native Studies.
