Thank you

HSTM Network Ireland would like to say a big thank you to all the speakers, chairs and attendees at the recent conference in Belfast. We are particularly indebted to Max Meulendijks for organising this year’s event and to our excellent hosts at Queen’s University Belfast.

Reminder: RDS Library Speaker Series talk tomorrow

Emma Swain, QUB, will give a talk on Animals, Evolution and the Victorians on Wednesday 3 October at 6.30pm in the Merrion Room.

The question, “What makes us human?” has a perennial fascination. This talk will explore how the Victorians, concerned about the impact of evolution on religious beliefs, considered the boundary between humans and other animals.

Emma Swain is completing her PhD at Queen’s University Belfast on Victorian science, and the relationship between humans and animals, in religious periodicals.

The event is free to book here
