Alexandra Prince Published in Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science

Alexandra Prince, a second year PhD student studying fringe religious movements and madness in the 19th century, was recently published in the March edition of the journal Zygon: Religion and Science. Alexandra’s article explores the use of stirpiculture in the Oneida utopian community in central New York. Prince makes the case that stirpiculture – a form of population engineering – was an early form of eugenics, placing the start of the use of eugenics in the United States two decades earlier than generally accepted. Great work, Alexandra!
