The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) invites all interested to a Public Lecture, in its ‘Science, Society and Nature’ series, on ‘A Disconnect in Need of Urgent Repair: Scientific thinking and policy-making’. The Lecture will be delivered by Prof. K. Vijayraghavan, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi. In this lecture, the speaker will address a global problem. Governments, the world-over, aim to serve people through crafting of policy. Scientific evidence can play a key role in policy making.

NMML Public Lecture on The Fields Beneath – London & Delhi

NMML Public Lecture on The Fields Beneath – London & Delhi

Events
The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library invites all interested to a Public Lecture, as part of its ‘Cities in History’ series, on "The Fields Beneath - London & Delhi" by Prof. Narayani Gupta. Indian urban historians recognise and study built towns, or networks of towns, but do not for most part examine why and how rural areas became  ‘urbanised’. This is largely because of the lack of archival records for the centuries before the 20th. This Public Lecture will be a tribute to the fine work of Gillian Tindall on the history of Camden Town, and written in the hope that researchers working on Delhi will be tempted to delve into the pasts of the villages that have lost their landscapes and often their very names over the last 100 years. Date: Thursday, 21st August, 2014 Time: 3.0
