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.
