Your DNA, Your History?
17 November, 2018, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Have you had your DNA tested for family history? How do we think about our past using science? Should we be worried about sharing our biodata for genealogy?
This workshop introduces ways that your DNA connects to your past. In part one, Jerome de Groot discusses the implications and ethics of DNA sequencing for family history. In part two, participants of the ‘My Double Helix History’ project talk about their own DNA tests and the ways that they have begun to represent these aesthetically. Part three is a workshop considering how we might begin to ‘visualise’ the past through our DNA. Then, working with graphic artists, storytellers and poets everyone participating will begin to tell their story.
