The University of Denver held a Communications & Disabilities Symposium in Spring, 2002, featuring a variety of speakers including Tanis.  In her presentation, Tanis talked about the assumptions behind the science of transgenics and the way that difference has become pathologized such that transgenics are now being used in efforts to reduce or eliminate differences.
