Icons of Science

Three sessions of film forum on the image of science through cinema, at the Casal de Joves Palau Alòs.

The proposal "Icons of Science" not only aims to see good movies but also to discuss recurrent ideas around scientists and science, the image of the creative genius, the lone scientist isolated from the world, the "eureka! moment", the separation between theoretical science and applied science, or the concept of  neutral science.

This cycle will consist of three sessions led by various members of XEHC (History of Science Student Talks) who will present the film and then lead the discussion with the audience. The sessions will take place at the Casal de Joves Palau Alòs (Sant Pere mes Baix 55, Barcelona). The projections are as follows:
