Coming of Age of Science in Wales: Swansea 1848

 

Wednesday 25th April at 7:30pm

 

Prof John Tucker (Swansea University)

 

The British Science Festival has been to Swansea four times. The first was in 1848, when the then British Association for the Advancement of Science visited the Royal Institution of South Wales. What was Swansea like? What drew the meeting to Swansea in 1848? And what was the meeting like? Who were the scientists visiting the town? What was the science they were reporting? With 800+ participants and Faraday, Joule, Kelvin, de la Beche, among them, the meeting is an interesting guide to the state of science in the Year of Revolutions, 1848.

 

Join us each month as we invite a leading expert in their field to give an introductory talk followed by friendly informal discussion.

 

Sit back and listen or get involved in the discussion and debate.
