Dr Anna Marie Roos Announced as a Speaker

An examination of the cultural influences which shaped some of our earliest science.

 

The research interests of Dr Anna Marie Roos range over almost all aspects of the early modern period in Britan; particularly anything related to the development of science during this period. The results are quite astonishing. The newly emerging scientific ideas took inspiration from a wide range of previous systems of thought which nowadays seem out of place or even contrary, such as magic and religion. This insight into a wide range of subjects and how they relate to science places her in a unique position to comment on Boyle and what influenced him.

Dr Roos herself is currently a senior lecturer in Lincoln  University. She has also contributed to a number of projects for the Royal Society and Oxford University as well as a number of T.V. and radio appearances.
