Event Details

PLEASE NOTE: THIS TALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Surprisingly, it was a major science festival that placed the Commonwealth on the world stage in 1914. Not even the outbreak of war could prevent over 300 British scientists continuing to Australia for the 84th annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BAAS). Four years in the planning, the meetings generated excitement, debate and more than a few controversies in every capital city. BAAS was formed in 1831 to promote science and its annual meetings were famous for their startling scientific announcements. Behind the 1914 tour of Australia were two great personalities: British geneticist William Bateson and Australian chemist David Rivett, at the opposite ends of their respective illustrious careers. Relive this crucial period in the development of science in Australia with Geoffrey Fishburn
