Retired Members' Lunch and Lecture: The Life and Work of Faraday

 

 

 

SCI HQ, London, UK
13 May 2011, 11:00 - 13:00
Organised by SCI's London Regional Group

 

Synopsis

The topic chosen for the first SCI Retired Members’ Lunch and Lecture will interest not only scientists, but their friends and partners. All scientists will know from their earliest school science lessons of the impact of this historic man, but Professor James’s talk ‘The Life and Work of Faraday’ will be an engaging presentation of his fascinating story.

This lecture is open to all members and their guests, whether retired or not.

Speaker

Frank James is Professor of the History of Science at the Royal Institution. He has written widely on science and technology in the nineteenth century and how they relate to other areas of society and culture, for example technology, art, religion and the military. He is particularly interested in the processes by which knowledge created in a laboratory is applied in practical situations, an area where the Royal Institution played an enormously significant role. He is editor of the correspondence Michael Faraday (of which four out of six volumes have so far been published) and “the Common Purposes of Life” a collection of essays on the Royal Institution. He is Past President of the Newcomen Society for the History of Engineering and Technology and is Past President of the British Society for the History of Science
