Lunch Hour Lecture: Science and the First World War
The Scott Room |

Ticketing: Ticketed and Pre-booking essential
Prof Jon Agar, UCL Science and Technology Studies
By examining the lives of figures such as Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley and Fritz Haber, Prof Jon Agar will show how scientists on all sides of the First World War were swept up in the tide of patriotism, militarism and nationalism, making contributions, some tragically brief, some devastatingly effective, to the waging of war. And what of the long-lasting effects? While some saw the Great War as an irreparable crisis of modern civilisation, with science as a symbol of inhumanity, others saw science as a internationalist project capable of healing wounds.
Please note that this event is TICKETED and BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
