“Don’t Panic!”: The Promises and Threats of Science and Technology
Using the three floors of the Museum of the History of Science, we invite you to explore hopes and fears in relation to science and technology. Through drama, the evening will bring to life episodes from history, including the eruption of Krakatoa and Dorothy Hodgkin’s work on penicillin.
The evening combines impromptu and staged performance, and film, with academic interpretation and discussion. Join us for an entertaining and interactive night at the Museum drawing on humanities research at the University of Oxford; the collections of the Museum of the History of Science and the actors of Pegasus Theatre.
Doors will open at 7pm.
There is lift access to the Basement Galleries only (including the Special Exhibition Gallery). The lift can be accessed in the Sheldonian Yard through the gate to the left of the Museum. Please do contact us if you require assistance with access and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
