Workshop “Postgenomic Determinisms” – March 25-26, 2021 – online

Mar 11, 2021


Enviromental Narratives after the Century of the Gene 

March 25-26, 2021 (online)

Join us at this workshop focusing on the new postgenomic trend towards environmental determinism.

It aims to address the conceptual foundations and theoretical presumptions of different forms of strong causal influences on organisms and human bodies.

In addition, it will historically contextualize this new environmentalist trend, and explore the anthropological, social and political contexts affecting and being affected by these developments.

This workshop is organised by the ROTO group (The Return of the Organism in the Biosciences: Theoretical, Historical and Social Dimensions).
