Research on power, violence and inequality raises ethical dilemmas for scholars, including how to tackle these issues in institutions of higher learning. Panelists will discuss how and why it is important to address the role of the University of Virginia in the eugenics movement and why scholars need to study its contemporary legacies, one of which is racial bias.
