10. Science and the First World War (26 June 2014)

Science and the First World War (26 June 2014)

Science and the First World War (26 June 2014) Lunch Hour Lectures on tour at The Guardian, June 2014 This summer series of Lunch Hour Lectures marks the centenary of the start of the First World War and is introduced by Guardian experts. Professor Jon Agar, UCL Science and Technology Studies By examining the lives of figures such as Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley and Fritz Haber, Prof Jon Agar will show how scientists on all sides of the First World War were swept up in the tide of patriotism, militarism and nationalism, making contributions, some tragically brief, some devastatingly effective, to the waging of war. And what of the long-lasting effects? While some saw the Great War as an irreparable crisis of modern civilisation, with science as a symbol of inhumanity, others saw science as a internationalist project capable of healing wounds.
