Conference: Darwin and Human Nature, Cambridge, 19-20 April 2012

///Conference: Darwin and Human Nature, Cambridge, 19-20 April 2012

Conference: Darwin and Human Nature, Cambridge, 19-20 April 2012

A series of intersecting boundaries have defined the human from the mid-19th century to the present: human/animal, civilized/savage, woman/man, mind/machine, and nature/culture. This conference will examine how different disciplines have constructed and contested these boundaries, and will reflect on the legacy of Darwinian frameworks of the ‘human’ today.

See further details including the conference programme. Online registration will be available closer to the event date.

Conveners

Dr Paul White (Darwin Correspondence Project/History and Philosophy of Science, Cambridge)
Dr Sophie Defrance (Darwin Correspondence Project, Cambridge)
Prof James Secord (History and Philosophy of Science, Cambridge)
