Rowan University Art Gallery presents the exhibit "Common Interests: mobility and transformation of public life" from January 22 through March 16.

Location: Boyd Recital, Wilson Hall
Science and Social Justice Lecture presented by Dr. Dorothy Roberts, George A. Weiss University Professor of Law and Sociology and the Raymond Pace and Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Professor of Civil Rights, University of Pennsylvania School of Law.
In this lecture, Dr. Dorothy Roberts will outline the social construction of race and expose the historical entanglements of scientific research with the idea of biological race. The legacies of medical exploration, experimentation and neglect based on the interlocking realities of race, gender, and class will be given special attention within the frames of bioethics and legal boundaries for conducting research. Attention will be given to the lessons that scientists can learn from the Henrietta Lacks story in addressing the issues of medical care, research, and ethics as shaped by social inequities.
