Book Release: Inheriting Possibility
- This event has passed.
Associate Professor Ezekiel J. Dixon-Román will be discussing his newest publication, Inheriting Possibility, during a special book release event. Open to the public, Dixon-Román will delve into how the book came to fruition, what scholarly interventions the book is making and will also read a select excerpt.
Inheriting Possibility explores the dualism of nature and culture that has undergirded theories of inheritance, social reproduction, and human learning and development. Through analyses of empirical data and cultural artifacts, Dixon-Román’s book reconsiders how we conceptualize the processes of inheritance and approach social inquiry to sharpen understanding and address the reproducing forces of inequality.
