A unique dramatization by UConn Professor Kenneth Noll as Charles Darwin. Darwin lived during a tumultuous time in England and
the world. Within all this, a new natural historian, or scientist as they were
beginning to be called, was developing ideas that would be influenced by and
impact many of these societal developments. Charles Darwin and his evolution
theories were a product of his times. This presentation will explore Darwin's
relation to many of these topics including political movements, poor laws,
religious doctrines, slavery, vivisection, and spiritualism.
