Description

 

Extract from a speech given by Winston Churchill,
17 Oct 1959 at the site of Churchill College, Cambridge

The Churchill Archives, Churchill College, Storey's Way, Cambridge, CB3 0DS

Convenors:
Jon Agar (Dept of History and Philosophy of Science)
Allen Packwood (Director, The Churchill Archives)
Ludmilla Jordanova (Director, CRASSH)

This conference reexamines the intimate history of scientists and government in Britain in the 20th century. As part of CRASSH's programme of events engaging with the theme of Conversation, we will not only revisit the question of why did formal dialogue between scientists and government deepen, but also discuss the informal relationships: the talk that was 'off the record'.
