The return of race science with Angela Saini

Back by popular demand, science journalist Angela Saini joins us in March to talk about her latest book, the critically acclaimed Superior. She will explore the murky history of race science and the ways in which it is being resurrected in the 21st century. Combining science, history and politics, her work explains how race maps out biologically and how those on the far-right are attempting to repackage racism.

A warm, engaging and ferociously intelligent speaker, Angela is an award-winning science journalist, author and broadcaster.  She presents radio and television programmes for the BBC, and her writing has appeared across the world, including in New Scientist, Prospect, The Sunday Times, Wired, and National Geographic. Superior was named book of the year by The Financial Times, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and many more.

"This is an essential book on an urgent topic by one of our most authoritative science writers." Sathnam Sanghera
