Public history of science lecture by Professor Farah Mendlesohn

Event details

Farah Mendlesohn is head of department for English, Communication, Film and Media at Anglia Ruskin University.

The lone (mad) scientist is a common trope in science fiction, but hidden away is a fascination with secret and semi-secret societies who work for the future of all mankind. This talk will look at the representation of the Royal Society in science fiction and fantasy as fact, fantasy and metaphor.
