White Trash

In her best-selling history of the class system in America, historian Nancy Isenberg upends history as we know it by taking on our comforting myths about equality and uncovering the crucial legacy of the ever-present, always embarrassing—if occasionally entertaining—poor white trash.

Whiteness: The Meaning of a Racial, Social and Legal Construct

In the wake of Donald Trump’s election and bestselling books like Hillbilly Elegy and White Trash, there is a growing realization that whiteness is as much a social racial and political identity as being African, Latin, Asian or Native American.

Our esteemed panel brings their interdisciplinary perspective to the panel to explain why race—including whiteness—still matters in America. (November 16, 2017)

The authors focus on the third and fourth American presidents' relationship and their affect on the American political system. Mr. Burstein and Ms. Isenberg argue that although Thomas Jefferson is the more often recognized figure, it was James Madison who played a key role in the development of the two-party system and gave the early push to elect George Washington to the presidency.

Eugenics: A Historical Perspective – CSHL public lecture

Indiana enacted the first eugenic sterilization law in 1907, and the Supreme Court upheld such laws in 1927. Beginning in the late1930s, proponents rationalized involuntary sterilization as protecting vulnerable women from unwanted pregnancy and by World War II, programs in the United States had sterilized some 60,000 people.
Today, state enabled programs to deprive people of fertility for eugenic reasons no longer operate and the idea that most forms of mental illness, mental retardation, criminality and social deviance are driven by single gene disorders is scientifically untenable.
How has the world of biology and genetics learned from this period of history, and what can we take from these lessons as we move towards a future of increasing technological capability with regards to human genes and traits?
Join author, geneticist, and former president of the American Society of Law, Medicine and Ethics, Philip R. Reilly, M.D., J.D. as he explores this fascinating subject.
