James Poskett talks to Jim Al-Khalili

Horizons: A Global History of Science

Hay Festival 2022, 

We are told that modern science was invented in Europe, the product of great minds like Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. But science has never been a uniquely European endeavour. James Poskett (Associate Professor of the History of Science at the University of Warwick) presents a revolutionary and revelatory global history of science, exploring the ways in which scientists from Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific fit into this global story and celebrating unsung heroes.
