Bioethics Grand Rounds: Historical Justice for Sterilization Survivors? Redressing Eugenics in the United States

Alexandra Minna Stern, PhD

Organized by Center for Bioethics and Social Science in Medicine: http://cbssm.med.umich.edu/news-events/events/grand-rounds/bioethics-grand-rounds-alex-minna-stern-phd/wed-03272019

This talk pivots around the current bill being considered in the California legislature to compensate survivors of the state's 20th century eugenic sterilization program. I explore the genesis of historical and demographic research that informs this bill, which is based at U-M's Sterilization and Social Justice Lab and encompasses qualitative and quantitative methods and humanistic approaches. In addition to reflecting on how historical research can inform social justice efforts, I will discuss compensation and memorialization as forms of restorative justice with the potential to redress past state harm and medical malfeasance.
