Prof. Owen White to Participate in Darwin Day

​The University of Delaware will mark International Darwin Day on Monday, Feb. 11, with talks by seven scientists and scholars on such diverse topics as drug resistance in treating disease, the role of native plants in the landscape and why we study dinosaurs. Charles Darwin was born on 12 February 1809. Numerous events have been organized around the world to celebrate his contributions to humanity, science and rational thought.

The keynote address will be given from noon to 1:30 p.m. by Kenneth J. Lacovara, a UD alumnus who is founding dean of the School of Earth and Environment at Rowan University and who won renown for his discovery of the 65-ton Dreadnoughtus dinosaur. He is the author of the award-winning book Why Dinosaurs Matter, which is also the topic of his lecture.

Prof. Own White will present  his paper "Abusing Darwin? 'Social Darwinism' before World War One" on Monday, February 11, 2019, 3:30 - 4:00 ISE Lab Room 215. Dr. White specializes in the history of modern France and the French colonial empire, with particular research interests in French West Africa and Algeria.

Please join us in the Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory at 221 Academy Street in Newark, DE for the annual event.
