Being Modern: Science and Culture in the early 20th century

Institute of Historical Research, London 22-24 April 2015
Registration is now invited. See  <http://www.qmul.ac.uk/being-modern/> 
For programme and link to the registration page.

Engagement with science was commonly used as an emblem of "Being modern", across culture in Britain and the western world in the years around the First World War. Today, historical studies of literature, art, design, lifestyle and consumption as well as of the human sciences are exploring intensively, but frequently separately, on that talk of "science". Historians of science are exploring the interpenetration of discourse in the public sphere and expert communities. This pioneering interdisciplinary conference is therefore planned to bring together people who do not normally meet in the same space. Scholars from a range of disciplines will come together to explore how the complex interpretations of science affected the re-creation of what it was to be modern.

In association with the conference, the Science Museum and Ensemble BPM  are mounting two performances of the modernist opera "Three Tales" by Steve Reich and Beryl  Korot, and there will be a limited number of free and reduced price tickets for conference attendees on a first come first serve basis. For more information about the opera,  please write to research at sciencemuseum.ac.uk <mailto:research at sciencemuseum.ac.uk> . The opera will be advertised publically in the very near future.
