Darwin Vexed: A History of Emotions and Anger
|Venue:||The Linnean Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BF, United Kingdom|
02074344479 ext 211
SPECIAL EVENT 17:30–20:00 Thursday 12 September 2019
In association with Queen Mary University of London
What can looking at the past tell us about our feelings in the present? What can historical figures like Charles Darwin teach us about capturing and controlling our emotions? This is what the Living with Feeling project, based at Queen Mary University of London, sets out to explore. At this evening event, the project will launch its new audio series, The Sound of Anger, including a radio play about Darwin’s seminal book The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.
Come join us for a live performance, a Q&A with historian Prof Thomas Dixon and playwright Craig Baxter, and a drinks reception.
Tickets can be reserved via EventBrite.
