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.
