DNA Testing and American Identity

July 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Dr. Jennifer Hochschild, the Henry LaBarre Jayne Professor at Harvard University and the Chair of the Department of Government, for a talk that will focus on the relationships between biology, and ethnic or racial identity. Up to 26 million Americans have received results from DNA ancestry tests. How do members of different races and ethnicities respond to stories of multiple origins, or to learning about a particular geographic area from which one set of ancestors derived? Cosponsored by the Newton Human Rights Commission.
