At a time of revolutionary politics and global conflict, the Royal Institution was set up as a site for communicating scientific knowledge to an aristocratic and upper class audience. Join Frank James for this illustrated lunchtime talk in which he will discuss its origins and what has changed since.
Frank James is Professor of the History of Science and Head of Collections at the Royal Institution, having received a PhD for a thesis on the development of spectroscopy at Imperial College London.
