Welcome to the website for ‘Origins of science as a visual pursuit’. This website functions as a forum for friendly and helpful exchange of views and comments among participants of an AHRC international network which focuses on the early Royal Society. We also realize that the visual aspects of knowledge in pre-modern Europe are of interest to a wider group of scholars. So we invite our colleagues to post reviews of papers, books, meetings, and exhibitions; introduce ongoing work, up-coming meetings, useful resources, out-of-the-way references and papers that could be of interest. We also encourage dialogue by commenting on others’ posts and helping with questions posed. Your posts can be brief and snappy, or long and reflective.
You can keep up with blogs by signing up to “follow” this site (bottom right hand corner).
Kindly respect copyright restrictions and scholarly etiquette. Thank you.
