UCL has launched an inquiry into the history of eugenics at UCL, which is being led by an independent chair, Professor Iyiola Solanke of the University of Leeds. At this Town Hall meeting, members of the Inquiry will present an interim summary of their findings so far, and discuss some of the trends, patterns and questions thrown up by their research.

Please note that, as the Inquiry is ongoing and due to complete at the end of this year, no final conclusions or recommendations will be presented.

The Town Hall will take place from 3–5pm on 11 October 2019, in the Medical Sciences AV Hill Lecture Theatre (please note that the venue for the event has changed). You can reserve your ticket via Eventbrite.
