Friday, 16 March 2018


12.30 - 13.30


Muirhead Tower, Cadbury Research Library, Seminar Room (R21 on campus map)


Free, booking recommended.

Martin Killeen and Dr Kate Croft will lead a hands-on session looking at the role printed material played in the development of steam technology.

It will consider how printed material disseminated new scientific ideas to innovators like James Watt, but also allowed ordinary people access to information about science, technology and innovation and created an audience for popular science for the first time.

Presented by the School of History and Cultures in partnership with Cadbury Research Library.
