About Constance Sommery and Koen Beumer
Ever since Charles Darwin published his On the Origin of Species in 1859, evolution has spawned controversy. We will use this closing event as an opportunity to address some of these controversies. Haeckel-expert Constance Sommerey will reconstruct the history of how Haeckel’s unencumbered belief in human animal descent and the refutation of the biblical Genesis eventually led to a ban of the entire subject of biology from German secondary schools in 1882. Sociologist of science Koen Beumer will then show how ideas about evolution have also caused a great deal of debate in research by discussing controversial studies into human-animal hybrids.
