IGA Lecture on 23rd June 2021 at 7pm – “Mary Anning: Her Life and Times” by Dr. Ed Jarvis (University College Cork)
June 237:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are delighted to announce our next lecture from Dr. Ed Jarvis taking place on Wednesday 23rd June at 7pm via Zoom!
Abstract: Mary Anning (1799–1847, living her entire life in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England) made major contributions to palaeontology in the first half of the 19th century. However, coming from a working-class background, she had no formal scientific education and she found herself working at a time when it was very hard for a female scientist to be taken seriously. This talk will explore the nature of Mary’s contributions to geology, both in her work as a gifted amateur palaeontologist and in the positive influence as a role model that she had on subsequent generations of women, not only scientists.
Dr David Edward Jarvis grew up exposed to Mary Anning’s legacy in the West Country of England before joining the Geology Department in UCC some 35 years ago.
