    Why do we need Monsters?

    Today we worry about chimaeras - organisms created by combining genes from more than one species - and science fiction writers imagine bizarre aliens on other planets, just as nineteenth-century novelists placed them in the Centre of the Earth, on Lost Worlds or in Lands that Time Forgot.

    Almost every society has imagined monsters, often as hybrids of humans and beasts. This free public event brings together some of the most interesting researchers on ancient monsters and invites us to reflect on what purpose these nearly humans serve in societies ancient and modern.

    Professor David Wengrow (UCL) What is a monster, and do we really need them?

    I will offer some brief highlights from the argument of my (2014) book, ‘The Origins of Monsters’. While we tend to think of monsters as free creations of the mind, their history is often remarkably conservative. The same ones appear, time and again, in different contexts.

  2. Marx For The 21st Century

    Professor David Harvey, the world’s leading expert on Marx, visits the RSA to outline the much-debated economist’s continuing relevance in 21st century economics and society.

    This event was recorded live at The RSA on Friday 10th November 2017. Discover more about this event here: www.thersa.org/events/2017/11/ma…-the-21st-century
