    What If? Alternative Histories of Science

    Imagine that phrenology, the 19th-century study of mind by measuring bumps on people’s heads, had turned out to be true? Or that Darwin hadn’t been invited to go on the voyage of the Beagle? Or that the luminiferous ether had turned out to actually exist? Now imagine historians in discussion with stand-up comedians on these subjects, and you have “What If…?” Join moderator Anne Harrington and guests Andrew Berry, David Jones, Roberto Lalli and comedians Kevin Harrington, Raj Sivaraman, and Rob Crean as they improvise alternative histories of science.

    Free and open to the public, Harvard Museum of Natural History, 24 Oxford Street. Free parking available in the 52 Oxford Street garage. Part of the Cambridge Science Festival.
