Workshop 2: Registration open

Wireless: Oliver Lodge, Science, and Spiritualism, Royal Society, London, 24 April 2014

Oliver Lodge’s work in telecommunications arose from his life-long interest in the ether. This workshop explores Lodge’s impact on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century telecommunications, particularly wireless telegraphy and radio, but situates this alongside his interest in more esoteric etheric phenomena. Studying Lodge’s spiritualism provides a new way of understanding his physics, but also a way of approaching broader communication networks, occult or otherwise, of the period.

This one-day workshop features papers by Peter Bowler, Elizabeth Bruton, Christine Ferguson, David Hendy, Richard Noakes, and J. Patrick Wilson.

Registration is free but places are limited. To register, email oliverlodgenetwork@gmail.com giving your name and any dietary requirements.

Further details (including the programme) are available on the workshop page.
