Invitation To ‘Should Scientists Be Activists?’. A Lecture By Subir Sarkar

Sambhavna Trust & Environment Support Group cordially invite you to PM Bhargava Memorial Lecture on Science & Society by Subir Sarkar (Professor of Theoretical Physics, University of Oxford), titled-

 ‘Should Scientists be Activists?’

“This is a question that many scientists grapple with everyday. On the one hand they wish to preserve their scientific objectivity and neutrality – on the other hand they wish to engage with the issues of the day out of a sense of civic responsibility. This is particularly relevant in India which is perhaps unique in having commitment to scientific temper enshrined in its Constitution as a duty of its citizens. What should the role of a scientist in today’s society be?”
