Natural Selection and Beyond: Celebrating the Intellectual Legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace

This day conference will mark the launch of an authoritative edited volume – Natural Selection and Beyond: the Intellectual Legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace (Oxford University Press)


Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) was one of the late nineteenth century’s most potent intellectual forces. His link to Darwin as co-discoverer of the principles of natural selection alone would have secured him a place in history (presented in a joint paper to the Linnean Society with Darwin in 1858). However he went on to complete work entitling him to recognition as the ‘father’ of modern biogeographical studies, as a pioneer in the field of astrobiology, and as an important contributor to subjects as far-ranging as glaciology, land reform, anthropology and ethnography and epidemiology. This day conference will mark the launch of an authoritative edited volume – Natural Selection and Beyond: the Intellectual Legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace (Oxford University Press) – a rich collection of writings by more than twenty historians and scientists reviewing and reflecting on the work that made Wallace a famous man in his won time, and a figure of extraordinary influence and continuing interest today.
