Horizons: A Global History of Science

Saturday 7 October
Friends Meeting House

We are told that modern science was invented in Europe, the product of great minds such as Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein – but this is wrong. Science is not, and has never been, a uniquely European endeavour.

Dr James Poskett – Associate Professor in the History of Science and Technology at the University of Warwick, and author of Horizons: A Global History of Science – pushes the history of science beyond Europe, exploring the ways in which scientists from Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific fit into the story.

Challenging both the existing narrative and our perceptions of revered individuals, this is, above all, a celebration of the work of scientists neglected by history.
