Public history of science lecture by Dr Sachiko Kusukawa
Sachiko Kusukawa is a Fellow in the History and Philosophy of Science at Trinity College, Cambridge.
This lecture discusses the contribution of draftsmen, engravers, artistic fellows and others whose graphic skills were indispensable for the meetings and publications of the early Royal Society (1660-1720). While some of the names of those who produced images for the Society will be familiar - Robert Hooke and William Faithorne, for example - the majority remains little known or appreciated. This lecture will show the rich variety of visual resources they generated for the Royal Society by drawing on material from the Royal Society Archives and elsewhere.
This event is free to attend and open to all. No tickets are required. Doors open at 12:30pm and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
