Fellowship at the Max Planck Institute

Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (Berlin)

In January, I was honored to be a Visiting Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, where I was in residence with the research group dedicated to “Producing Knowledge About Human Biological Diversity.” Veronika Lipphardt, Susanne Bauer, Sandra Widmer, John Carson, Skuli Sigurdsson and Chihyung Jeon were excellent hosts and most generous interlocutors!

While in Berlin, I gave two presentations: The first was a lecture drawn from my forthcoming book Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination that will be published in early Fall by the University of Minnesota Press. The second talk drew from the first chapter of my book-in-progress, “Reconciliation Projects;” in this talk, I discussed the African Burial Ground project in lower Manhattan as an important origin for the subsequent popularity of genetic genealogy testing.
