Taking to the Field by Jane Carey is the first comprehensive history of Australian women in science from the colonial period to contemporary times. This untold story shows that women have played a greater role than is commonly recognised. From the first years of colonisation, women engaged in myriad scientific endeavours, ranging from botany to genetics to organic chemistry.
Zora Simic will be doing the launching honours on the night.
This event is free to attend but bookings are essential.
