 “Where Does Race Come From?”
The St. Mary’s College of Maryland Anthropology Department will host Professor Jonathan Marks, University of North Carolina, for the lecture “Where Does Race Come From?” on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 4:15 p.m. in Cole Cinema, Campus Center. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Marks will address the historical context of the development of the concept of race, in the 17th and early 18th centuries. He will review the patterns of human variation, and ask how science came to think incorrectly that there exist a few basic kinds of people, each associated with a continent.  He will also discuss the biblical association between place, inhabitants, and mythic ancestors; and then examine the role played by mapmakers in graphically re-conceptualizing that association in the 1600s.
