Conferences and Workshops

A few exciting talks are coming up at the Natural History Museum soon, which I thought would be worth highlighting for you. The first is the Annual A. R. Wallace Lecture which this year will take place on the 2nd June 16:30-17:30. The subject is ‘Wallace, Darwin, and Spiritualism: The Trial of the Spirit-Medium Henry Slade, 1876’. For more information, click here.

On the 24th July at 16:30, the SciFri Seminar series brings to you ‘The Greatest Living Naturalist- The Life and Conflicts of Professor Richard Owen’, in celebration of Richard Owen’s birthday. It will be in the Neil Chalmers Seminar Room. For more information, click here.



The long awaited ‘Power of Poison’ exhibition has opened at the Old Truman Brewery in London. The website invites you to ‘discover the alluring, seductive and terrifying role of poison and how it affects our everyday lives through nature, myth, medicine and healing’ and of course, will contain spiders, snakes, and other lovelies.

About Dr Emma-Louise Nicholls

As Deputy Keeper of Natural History at the Horniman Museum it's my great pleasure to care for and promote the osteological and palaeontological collections we house. My PhD and academic career have earned me the label 'shark specialist' which I carry proudly, but my non-academic passion is secret-not-secretly for rhinos. As well as Editor for the NatSCA blog and Scientific Advisor for ARKive, I use my spare time to support conservation projects through The Shark Trust, Save the Rhino, and Helping Rhinos.
