Sarah S. Richardson on The Maternal Imprint: Epigenetics and the Contested Science of Maternal-Fetal Effects
Monday, November 22, 2021, 6:00 – 8:00pm (CEST) at Hörsaal 605, TU Munich, Marsstr. 20–22 (sixth floor), Munich and via Zoom
Short description of the talk
Sarah Richardson will speak on her new book, The Maternal Imprint (Chicago, 2021). The book offers a critical analysis of conceptual and ethical issues—in particular, the staggering implications for maternal well-being and reproductive autonomy—provoked by the striking rise of epigenetics and fetal origins science in postgenomic biology today.
