How Humans and Matter Transformed One Another

Royal Science Institution, London 7- 8.30pm

How did the brevity of the telegram influenced Hemingway's writing style? How did a young chemist expose the use of Polaroid's cameras to create passbooks to track black citizens in apartheid South Africa?

This talk showcases little-known inventors, particularly people of colour and women, who had a significant impact but whose accomplishments have been hidden by mythmaking, bias, and convention.
