The Anthropology Department, Anthropology Club, and ASG are hosting a talk on the topic, DNA Ancestry: What Do Genetic Tests Really Reveal About Who We Are?, on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 from 12 to 2 pm in SSC 212. Within recent years a plethora of genetic testing companies have sprung into existence purporting to tell people about their "roots" or "heritage." In reality, however, these tests paint an oversimplified and even false picture of how culture, history, and genetics intersect. Come join us for a panel discussion on this fascinating and much-misunderstood topic.
