For the second year in a row, this dramatised reading will open the Conference Cycle on women in science organized by Alumni UB. The play shows a journey through time to raise awareness of women who have had a relevant role in the history of science and knowledge.
The session begins with the host of the show, Emilie du Chatelet, scientist and salonnière of the eighteenth century, which receives in her palace wise women from different eras: Hypatia of Alexandria, Trout of Salerno, Beatriu de Pinós, Sibylla Merian, Ada Lovelace, Nettie Stevens, Rosalind Franklin, Vera Rubin and Margarita Salas. The play has music performed by Hildegarda von Bingen.
Would you like to know who these women are and what they have done? They all have their own personal stories and have made amazing scientific discoveries, and they are ready to tell you!
This year, the dramatised video will be in a video format, to be seen online.
