This course reviews the history of race and ancestry in biological anthropology, beginning with the origins of “race science” in the field of anthropology. The foundations of scientific racism will be examined through readings on the forced study, medicalization, and oppression of marginalized groups in the biological sciences. The course is divided temporally, with most focus on the pre-WWII eugenics movement, the subsequent “New Physical Anthropology,” and modern approaches to restorative justice in skeletal study, collection, curation, and repatriation.
