CONTROL – The Dark History & Troubling Present of Eugenics  ​

Sunday 19 June: 3.30pm
Tickets: £10, £8

CONTROL tells the story of attempts by the powerful throughout history to dictate and dominate reproduction and regulate the interface of breeding and society. It is an urgently needed examination, deeply steeped in contemporary genetics, that unpicks one of the defining - and most destructive - ideas of the twentieth century. To know this history is to inoculate ourselves against its being repeated. 

Running time: 1hr
