Event Details

This summer UCL's Lunch Hour Lectures go 'on tour' to The Guardian for a short series marking the centenary of the start of World War One.

Science and the First World War

Prof Jon Agar, UCL Science and Technology Studies

By examining the lives of figures such as Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley and Fritz Haber, this talk will show how scientists on all sides of the First World War were swept up in the tide of patriotism, militarism and nationalism, making contributiong, 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 an internationalist project capable of healing wounds.
