Evolution, the Victorians and Ourselves
A talk by Doctor Darren Oldridge of Worcester University
This talk will explore the cultural and scientific impact of Charles Darwin’s work on late Victorian England and the continuing relevance of his work in our time.
Drawing on historical studies of nineteenth-century ideas about evolution, it will focus on the religious and moral implications of what came to be known as ‘Darwinism’.
