ABOUT H-Eugenics

The purpose of H-Eugenics is to provide a forum for the discussion of the history of eugenics. This includes discussion of primary and secondary sources related to the history of eugenics; discussion or debate on specific aspects of the history of eugenics as they occur to list participants; ideas for books, articles, courses, or other scholarly projects on the history of eugenics; reviews of books and other scholarly literature related to the history of eugenics; and discussion of the relationship of 21st century biomedical procedures and genetic modification to eugenics ( i.e., “neo-eugenics”).

Like all H-Net lists, H-Eugenics is moderated to edit out material that, in the editors’ opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical matters (such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net’s procedure for resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article II, Section 2.20 of our bylaws, located at: . Logs and more information can also be located at:
