Ingenuity and Craft Culture in Early Modern London
Professor Robert Iliffe (University of Oxford) examines how the work of artisans, especially scientific instrument-makers, was represented by Samuel Hartlib and Robert Hooke in early modern London. He will look at the changing intellectual and social contexts for their accounts, as well as the ways in which their own interests and identities informed the way they wrote about craftsmen.
