The Geographies of Scientific Knowledge

Free. Registration Advised.

Science has a geography as well as a history. Where and when scientific enquiry takes place influences the types of science produced and how it is received by popular and professional audiences. From glasshouses to galaxies and from Darwin to the Ulster Museum, science never exists in a cultural or historical vacuum. In this set of short talks we explore how Belfast, as well as other cities, were sites for scientific debate, display and at times, discord.
