Seminar 5

Genetic, citizenship and social identities

ESRC Seminar 5 (24 March 2017)

Securitisation and forensic genetics

The fifth and penultimate event in our ESRC Seminar series on ‘genetics, technology, security and justice. Crossing, contesting and comparing boundaries’ will focus on forensic genetics and related technologies in the context of securitization and surveillance. The seminar will expand the perspective on forensic genetics by focusing attention on pro-active/pre-emptive security measures, exploring how practices and institutions may differ between investigative and surveillance uses of forensic genetics technologies.

Bursaries for Early Career Researchers are available and will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The bursary can cover reasonable travel costs and accommodation for together up to £250. Bursary holders will be asked to write a brief report about the seminar discussions for the seminar series website. Please contact for further information.
