Popular Science Book Club reads Superior

June 5, 2020
Alexandra Krogman

During the summer quarter, the Popular Science Book Club will read "Superior: the Return of Race Science" by Angela Saini. In this book, Saini examines the enduring and disturbing belief in biological racial differences that impacts research and scientific advancement.

We invite Stanford students, staff, and faculty to join us for this introduction to the racism that lives within our world of science. Join us for our monthly meetings where we will discuss the book in parts, or start a discussion on our Stanford Slack channel. For more information about how to participate, visit our website.
