Talk on Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring: Tonight

On Friday 28th September (tonight!) there is a talk by Prof Stuart Reynolds on Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. First published in 1962, the book has been described as ‘the founding text of modern environmentalism’ (Greg Garrard, Ecocriticism). Reynolds will ask “Why did it take so long (or did it?) to realise the environmental dangers of persistent chemical pollutants like DDT? And did Carson play fair in her attack on the culture of chemicals?”

The talk takes place at 7.30 at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, Queen’s Square, Bath. For more details check their website here: http://www.brlsi.org/events-proceedings/events/2012-09-28/fifty-years-silent-spring
