Christ’s College and the Science and Literature Reading Group present:
Monday 9th March, 7.30pm Lloyd Room, Christ’s College
2009 marks the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. The Cambridge Science and Literature Reading Group has organised an evening of history, science, and poetry to commemorate these events.
Boris Jardine, PhD student at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science, will speak on Darwin’s microscopic practices: the rocks, plants and creatures that resolved into his view, from Beagle to barnacles.
Poet Kelley Swain will then read from her new work entitled Darwin’s Microscope (Flambard Press, 2009), an exploration of Darwin’s life and influence, and of the poetics of looking closely into the natural world.
Please RSVP to Melanie Keene (firstname.lastname@example.org).
