EGENIS seminar: "A New Tuskegee? Unethical Human Experimentation and Western Neocolonialism in the Mass Circumcision of African Men", Dr Brian Earp (University of Oxford)

Campaigns to circumcise millions of boys and men to reduce HIV transmission are being conducted throughout eastern and southern Africa, recommended by the World Health Organization and implemented by the United States government and Western NGOs. In the United States, proposals to mass-circumcise African and African American men are long standing, and have historically relied on racist beliefs and stereotypes. The present campaigns were started in haste, without adequate contextual research, and the manner in which they have been carried out implies troubling assumptions about culture, health, and sexuality in Africa, as well as a failure to properly consider the economic determinants of HIV prevalence..

Exeter Food 2021-2022 Seminar Series

The popularity of ‘soda taxes’ as a public health policy has grown rapidly in the last few years, offering what appears to be a ‘simple’ solution to a ‘complex’ problem. While the evidence suggests that a tax is associated with reducing the purchases of sugar-sweetened beverages, there are a number of questions that remain, including: understanding possible spill-over effects across the food system, the mechanisms for behaviour change (how much of the effect is actually price versus other effects), extensions to tax policies beyond ‘soda’, importance of changed product composition versus overall consumption. In this presentation, I will outline research we have conducted in the UK over the last few years that cover these (and other) areas, including our current evaluation of the UK’s ‘soda tax’, the ‘sugar drinks industry levy’..

EGENIS seminar: "Epistemic Risk Meets Biological Race Realism", Dr Celso Neto (University of Exeter)

Biological race realism is the view that humans form biologically real groups. This view has a long history related to racists, colonialists, and pseudoscientific practices (e.g., Bernasconi and Lott 2000). Nevertheless, while these practices have been thoroughly exposed and rejected, it does not follow that biological race realism is wrong. In fact, new defenses of this view have emerged recently based on sophisticated and reputable work in science and philosophy (Hardimon 2003; 2017; Spencer 2012; 2014; 2019b; 2019a).. Full details
