(Originally aired on March 31, 2019) Do you think biology alone can decide any aspect of your identity? In this podcast, Professor Burlingame uses anthropology to challenge the inaccurate notion that genes define ethnicity and race. Using Native Americans as a broad cultural and historical example, Prof B breaks down what genes can, and cannot, tell you about your racial or ethnic identity. What you might lose in biological certainty, you may still gain back in cultural and historical significance. Take the challenge!
