On Thursday March 6th at 6pm we are lucky enough to have with us Samanth Subramanian, author of the award winning 2020 biography of the geneticist and occasional communist JBS Haldane, “The Radical Politics and Restless Science of JBS Haldane.” Haldane, and his father before him, lived in the house “Cherwell” which occupied the ground we now know as Wolfson College. Our annual Haldane lecture, and the Haldane Room, are both named after the two famous scientists.
