The Rosalind Franklin Lecture

#1 Post by Alan H » January 19th, 2016, 7:46 pm

Just announced by the BHA: The Rosalind Franklin Lecture 2016
The British Humanist Association presents the inaugural Rosalind Franklin Lecture, delivered by Anne Glover and chaired by Samira Ahmed.

The Rosalind Franklin Lecture explores and celebrates the contribution of women towards the promotion and advancement of Humanism – be that to science, philosophy, or the promotion of democracy and human rights – in Britain and around the world.

The first lecture in the series will be delivered by Professor Dame Anne Glover, a former chief scientific adviser to the Scottish Government and European Commission, and chaired by BBC journalist Samira Ahmed. It will take place in Central London on the evening of Wednesday 10 March, to complement International Women’s Day two days earlier.

The series is named for Rosalind Franklin, a pioneering chemist who was crucial to a discovery of DNA, and who revealed to the world its unique double helix structure.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
