Science For Who? A Dialogue on the March for Science

Mon, Apr 10, 2017 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm


How has science been used to benefit certain groups and harm others? What legacy have we inherited as scientists in the twenty-first century? How can we ensure that science is used for the public good, rather than a select group of people? And how can we grapple with the intersection of science and politics?

Like it or not, science is currently more politicized than it has been in decades. One high-profile outcome of this politicization—the March for Science—has pushed many often-unexamined assumptions about the function of science in society to the fore. Join us on Monday, April 10 at 5 PM in Dana 1046 for the second Science for Who meeting, to ask tough, probing questions about the politics emerging from the March for Science and what those politics must look like in order to also promote racial, economic, and ecological justice.
