Upcoming conference in Ireland on the history of physics

Much as I dislike the word “upcoming”, it is my pleasure to reblog this announcement about a conference to be held at Trinity College next summer (June 17th to 19th).

The conference marks the fourth in a biennial series of meetings supported by the UK Institute of Physics and the European Physical Society that aim to bring together historians of science and physicists with an interest in the history of their subject and will take place at Trinity College Dublin on June 17th-19th. The website for the conference is here and previous iterations of the conference can be found here.

  2. Phillip: as stated on the website and the poster, a central topic will be the history of 20th century physics, from the world of the v small to the world of the v large

  3. Peter: that would be an excellent topic! It would also fit v nicely with a short talk I’m thinking of submitting on Hubble’s law
