InReach10x Seminar - James Poskett
Oculus OC1.01

InReach10X will bring Warwick's most exceptional research to an extensive audience. In doing so, we hope to inspire those thinking about a research career to follow their passion and open our leading research to a wider audience, creating the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaborations to emerge. In the inaugural series of lectures, Warwick academics will present some of the most exciting and transformative research in topics spanning the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and medicine.

Our second speaker will be James Poskett:

The Global Origins of Modern Science

Where did modern science come from? Until recently, most historians agreed that the origins of modern science could be located in Europe, sometime between 1500 and 1700. In this talk, based on the latest scholarship, I present a very different account. Beginning in the fifteenth century and moving right through to the present, I make the case for the global origins of modern science, exploring the ways in which Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific fit into the story. The history of modern science, I argue, needs to be understood as part of a history of global cultural exchange. In making this argument, I uncover the forgotten contributions of scientists from around the world, whilst also making the ethical, political, and intellectual case a critical engagement with the legacies of the history in the world of science today.

Bold policies for uncertain times: paths to economic and social success
Drapers' Hall Bayley Lane Coventry CV1 5RN

Panel ft. Arun Advani, Liam Byrne MP, Andy Haldane and Clare McNeil discussing bold policy solutions to the UK's challenges

Austerity, Brexit, Covid and the war in Ukraine have all left their mark on the UK: inequality is on the rise, living standards are falling, and growth is stagnating. Added to these challenges is another that can no longer be ignored: the global climate crisis.

How can policymakers navigate these challenges and forge a path to economic and social success?

Join our panel of experts to discuss bold policy solutions. They’ll discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the UK today – from inequality to child poverty, investment in public services to achieving net zero – and consider how we can reshape policy to address them.


Dr. Arun Advani (University of Warwick/LSE)

Liam Byrne MP (Birmingham Hodge Hill)

Andy Haldane (Royal Society of Arts)

Clare McNeil (London Progression Collaboration/IPPR)
