(event is over)

Jason Fletcher, a professor at UW-Madison's La Follette School of Public Affairs, Sociology, Applied Economics and Population Health Sciences, will discuss his new book, The Genome Factor: What the Social Genomics Revolution Reveals about Ourselves, Our History, and the Future Special Guest Doug Moe will introduce Jason and lead a Q&A session. Copies of Professor Fletcher's book will be available for purchase at the event courtesy of Mystery to Me bookstore, and the evening will conclude with a book signing. "For a century, social scientists have avoided genetics like the plague. But the nature-nurture wars are over. In the past decade, a small but intrepid group of economists, political scientists, and sociologists have harnessed the genomics revolution to paint a more complete picture of human social life than ever before. The Genome Factor describes the latest astonishing discoveries being made at the scientific frontier where genomics and the social sciences intersect."
