The speaker at this week’s Literature and Science ECR Forum will be Kanta Dihal. She will be speaking about her work on
 

“The Simultaneous Development of Quantum Mechanics and its Popularizations”

The first popularizations to discuss quantum mechanics were published at a time when the field itself was still far from being entirely understood. This situation is used as an example to highlight the fact that science never develops separately from culture at large.
