BroadScience - The Social Life of DNA Part 2: What does it mean to be Indigenous?

Released: Mar 19, 2018

This episode will conclude our series on the social life of DNA.
First, on BiteSize Science (6.02min), we chat about Atlantic staff writer Ed Yong’s two-year mission to fix the gender imbalance in his writing.  Our main story then follows Dr. Lynn Gehl(7.35min), an Algonquin-Anishinaabe woman from Eastern Ontario who just last April won her 30-year fight for status recognition under the complex rules of Canada’s Indian Act. Our guest, Dr. Kim TallBear(25.12min), helps us navigate the complicated intersection between DNA and Indigeneity. This episode ends with a preview of Broad Science’s communication workshop with Graduate STEM students at McGill University(uploaded in full as a bonus*).

Mission:

Indigenous Science, Technology, and Society (Indigenous STS) is an international research and teaching hub, housed at the University of Alberta, for the bourgeoning sub-field of Indigenous STS. Our mission is two-fold: 1) To build Indigenous scientific literacy by training graduate students, postdoctoral, and community fellows to grapple expertly with techno-scientific projects and topics that affect their territories, peoples, economies, and institutions; and 2) To produce research and public intellectual outputs with the goal to inform national, global, and Indigenous thought and policymaking related to science and technology. Indigenous STS is committed to building and supporting techno-scientific projects and ways of thinking that promote Indigenous self-determination.
