Overview Rase

For more than ten years historian Jon Røyne Kyllingstad has studied how the concept of race has been used in the history of science, from the 1600s until today. The idea that some races have been elevated above others has been rooted in all parts of academia, and affected research within anthropology, history, and medicine. Some of our foremost researchers have allowed themselves to use a scientific “reasoning” for systematic discrimination, and in this interesting as well as frightening work parts of our academic history which so far has been forgotten or ignored is put to the light in a systemic manner.
