OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.

Race CultureDikotter describes how the concept of race gained power through scientific theory of eugenicsEugenics science concerned with improving the genetic traits of the human raceDikotter argues that population control in the poorer parts of the world today is still based on ideas similar to Nazi ideologyEugenics widely seen to be a morally acceptable and scientifically practical way of improving human heredity Disgust at Nazi practices while restating their belief in a humane and scientific way of genetically improving the human race expressed by liberal intellectuals like Aldous Huxley and Hermann MillerIn China eugenics has become official policy Politicians with mutually mismatched beliefs and scientists with opposed interests could all selectively appropriate eugenics to portray society as an organic body that had to be guided by biological lawsEugenics gave scientific authority to social fears and moral panics lent respectability to racial doctrines and provided legitimacy to sterilization acts and immigration lawsAllowed modernizing elites to represent their narrow claims about social order as objective statements irrevocably grounded in the laws of nature
