Sebastián Gil-Riaño (BAH ’05) will also join Penn’s History and Sociology of Science Department. Gil-Riaño earned a PhD from the University of Toronto. For the past two years he has been working at the University of Sydney as part of a research project titled Race and Ethnicity in the Global South. His book manuscript Redemptive Journeys: Anti-racism in Science during the Global Twentieth Century historicizes notions of anti-racism in science and examines how scientists from Latin America, Australasia, Europe and North America dismantled biological conceptions of ‘race’ and crafted sociocultural and historical alternatives.
