Thursday 17 November | 19.00–22.30
Using the three floors of the Museum of the History of Science, we invite you to embrace your hopes and fears in relation to science and technology. Using performance, the evening will bring to life the eruption of Krakatoa, early film responses to the nerve-racking nature of modern life, Dorothy Hodgkin’s work on the structure of penicillin and the personal and political dimensions of climate change. The evening combines impromptu and staged performance and film with academic interpretation and discussion. Join us for an entertaining and interactive night at the museum drawing on humanities research at the University of Oxford, the collections of the Museum of the History of Science and the actors of Pegasus Theatre.
