Check Out 50th Anniversary Of C.P. Snow Two Cultures Lecture University Of Maryland, Baltimore County

Fifty years ago, on May 7, 1959, the scientist-novelist C.P. Snow (1905-1972) delivered his famous Rede Lecture at Cambridge University. Published as The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution Snow identified a deep and dangerous divide between the sciences and the humanities. As a research chemist and physicist who became deeply involved in the mobilization of scientific personnel first during the Second World War and then throughout the 1950s Cold War, C.P. Snow could speak with some authority about science and its applications. As a novelist with more than a dozen titles and the author of numerous essays and reviews, Snow was equally at home in the humanities. This series of lectures is intended to stimulate further discussion about the relationships between the sciences and the humanities. Sponsored by UMBCs Dresher Center for the Humanities, the Human Context of Science and Technology Program and the Social Sciences Forum
