UCL's free public Lunch Hour Lecture series

I just received the following email, which might be of interest to those of you within easy reach of London (although the event will also be available online):

I’m hoping that one of UCL’s free public Lunch Hour Lectures on Tuesday 4 June entitled Dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park will be of interest to you and other members of the Friends of Darwin.

I work in UCL's events team running our free public Lunch Hour Lecture series. The lectures are going 'on tour' to the Museum of London this summer with a short series of four talks being held on Tuesdays in June, 1.15pm-1.55pm.

For more information about the full series visit: www.ucl.ac.uk/lhlontour

The lectures are free and open to all on a first-come first-served basis and require no pre-booking. Lectures can also be watched live online at www.ucl.ac.uk/lhl/streamed or after the event at our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/UCLLHL

Date: Tuesday 4 June, 1.15pm

Venue: The Weston Theatre, Museum of London, 150 London Wall, EC2Y 5HN

Title: Dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park

Lecturer: Prof Joe Cain, UCL Science and Technology Studies (@profjoecain)

Summary: The famous ‘monsters’ in Crystal Palace have been on display since the park opened in 1854. These are the first life-sized three-dimensional sculptures of dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, but there is a lot more to them than meets the eye. Discover the ideas behind them with science historian Professor Cain.

Buy my book: On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk
“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
