Join ‘Why Aren’t You A Doctor Yet?’ in conversation with award – winning science writer Angela Saini, as she explores the concept of race, both past and present in her new book – Superior. We’ll be dissecting the political roots of race, why scientists can’t seem to look beyond it, and the dark and dangerous ways in which scientific racism still exists today.

Angela Saini is an independent British science journalist and author of two acclaimed books. She presents science programmes on BBC Radio and her writing has appeared in the Guardian, The Times, Prospect, New Scientist, Wallpaper, Vogue, Marie Claire, Science, New Humanist, Wired, Stylist and the Economist among others. She has won a number of national and international journalism awards.

Her most recent book, Inferior: How Science Got Woman Wrong – and the New Research That’s Rewriting the Story, was published in 2017 by Harper Collins and Beacon Press. Her first book, Geek Nation: How Indian Science is Taking Over the World, was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 2011, and became a bestseller in India.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7pm.

This even will be filmed and on the Ri’s YouTuble channel within a few months.
