Professor Julia Creet of York University will present on her latest research on the genealogy industry. Her research explores the widespread phenomenon of desiring to know one’s ethnic origins to thus better “know” oneself, as well as the complex practices behind the major organizations with genealogical databases. Her work in multiple media thus explores questions of data privacy, identity politics, ethics, and genetics.
