Darwinkonference

Skrevet af Morten 8th januar, 2008 Kategoriseret under Evolution


Jeg har fået en henvendelse fra Århus Universitet, som d. 7-8 februar afholder en konference i anledning af, at 2009 er 200-året for Darwins fødsel og 150-året for publiceringen af Origin of Species. Konferencen er for videnskabshistorikere, men når de vi have, at jeg skal reklamere for den, er der måske også adgang for andre. Jeg må indrømme, at jeg ikke helt forstår, hvad konferencen handler om:

In 2009 Charles Darwin will be celebrated around the world for his 200th birthday 12 February and the 150th anniversary for the publication of On the Origin of Species. Already preparations are in full swing at schools, universities, museums, production companies and publishing houses. The internet is buzzing with excitement and antievolutionists are preparing for a counter strike. But where does that leave historians of science? What is our role? What can we do? How do we contribute to the Darwin anniversaries? Should we just submit ourselves to the Darwin craze in a wild hagiographical Victorian party? Or is this a privileged occasion for us to communicate the lessons of contemporary history of science and interact with a wider audience? Is this time for reflection or time for action? You decide! Come to Aarhus in February 2008 and let us talk about it – seriously.
