Race and Ecology – Dr. Joe Madison publishes in new issue of Harbinger: A Journal of Social Ecology

The issue features nine timely contributions, all exploring social ecological perspectives on race, racism, and colonialism. Taking aim at the intersection of genetic determinism and racial categorization, Joe Madison’s “Individualized Medicine as Racial Eugenics: A Critical Appraisal” suggests that social ecology offers an alternative epistemology to current medicine trends that reinforce essentialist and deterministic notions of identity, social control, and reduction of genetic diversity.
