Prejudice in Power is a programme of cultural activism for change against structural discrimination. It explores how eugenics has marginalised voices and shaped society.

Eugenic thinking is present in the racism, ableism, homophobia and reproductive controls we see today. This programme will take a critical look at UCL’s history of eugenics and its ongoing impact through the structural inequities eugenic thinking left as a legacy.

As a part of this programme, we are running a series of co-created projects working with communities and marginalised groups, a new Fellowship engaging with our collections and building on current work, and collating content and resources responding to UCL's legacies of eugenics.
