Disruption! We’ve all heard the word bandied about in the context of new technology. But what are the technologies that truly disrupted our understanding of the world around us, with long-term effects? Dig deep into the past to uncover the hidden histories of human-made objects with impacts so essential to our daily lives, we hardly stop to remember their value. Scientist and author Ainissa Ramirez will join us for a special talk on her new book The Alchemy of Us, which takes the long view of how technologies - clocks, photographic film, steel rails and more - have changed us.
