Reilly Lecture: Genetic Conditions at the Frontiers of Science and Metaphysics: Epigenetics and Literature


Location: 140 DeBartolo Hall

Reilly Center

Prof. Peter Middleton explores genetic variation at the borders of science, culture, and metaphysics. He will draw on a recent poem and novel that display a drive to understand genetic information in terms of development and environment that is also evident in biological and medical research into epigenetics. He discusses different molecular biological models of epigenetic change focusing on how both epistemological and cultural consequences of new scientific developments likely to affect body, identity, and culture. He reflects on the uses of folk poetry to articulate hopes and fears about genetic disorders, and how para-literary texts create a backdrop against which literary aesthetics can be understood.

XVth International Workshop Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plasminogen Activation

Location: Notre Dame Global Gateway, Rome, Italy
