Changing Science: Would Darwin get a job in science today?

Join us for an evening of light-hearted discussion as we investigate how science has changed over the past 200 years.

Join us for an evening of light-hearted discussion and debate as we investigate how science has changed over the past two hundred years. Moving from a time of gentleman naturalists with the means to explore and describe, experiment and invent to an era of funding applications and directed research, we ask whether things have got better.

With a lively panel of leading field zoologists, science historians and laboratory scientists we air the issues behind the changing disciplines. Should they be funded to explore with no specific question in mind beyond discovery? Are expensive expeditions better than computer-based research? Has science gone to the dogs?Where have all the polymaths gone?

Part of the "Natural Change Season" at the Grant Museum. Speakers include evolutionary biologist Dr Anjali Goswami (UCL Genetics, Evolution and the Environment and UCL Earth Sciences); science historian Dr Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) and evolutionary geneticist Prof Mark Thomas (UCL Genetics, Evolution and the Environment).
