Summary
During the 19th century, racial categorization took on a pseudoscientific stance. This program shows how the academic racism of the period helped to spread imperialist policies across the globe. Sifting through the "science" of eugenics and its link to social Darwinism, the film juxtaposes racial hygiene theories with racial warfare in Tasmania, Victorian apathy in famine-wracked India, and horrific German colonization tactics in Namibia. Commentary by David Dabydeen, Dr. Maria Misra, and Professor Catherine Hall
