Event description

Description

After Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species, he was reprimanded for failing to acknowledge his intellectual ancestors who had published ideas about evolution before him. He was mortified and set out to try to correct his mistake but struggled to find out much about these people. Rebecca Stott, novelist and historian of science, as well as Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at UEA, set out to find these people on Darwin's behalf. She introduces them - many of them misfits and iconoclasts - and asks what can we learn from these people?
