Genomics, race, identity, law enforcement and politics will be the subjects of a July 7 lecture at the John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress. Genomic science is growing rapidly, but political views and public policy have not caught up. What will happen when everyone’s genetic code is listed on his or her birth certificate, or when a sample of everyone’s DNA is in an FBI database? Join us to get answers to these and other questions based on new national research and interviews conducted by Jennifer Hochschild as the current Chair in American Law and Governance at the Kluge Center.
Thursday, July 7
4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Library of Congress
Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First Street, S.E., Washington, D.C., 20540
Sponsored by the Kluge Center, the lecture is free and open to the public. Information: 202-707-3302.
