Concepts of Knowledge in the Later Seventeenth Century: Thomas Plume in Context
Please join us for an exciting event on 26 September 2015, taking place between 10.30am and 16.45pm at The University of Essex.
The broad aim of the workshop is to map out the structure of knowledge as it was construed in the seventeenth century. The specific intention is to place in context the intellectual and philanthropic career of one relatively minor clergyman, Thomas Plume (1630-1704), Vicar of Greenwich and Archdeacon of Rochester, whose legacy includes (but is not confined to) the library he instituted in Maldon, Essex and the professorship in astronomy he endowed in Cambridge.
Speakers and panel chairs include: Dr Stephen Clucas, Professor Kenneth Fincham, Dr Tom Freeman, Dr Fiona McCall, Dr David Pearson, Professor James Raven, Professor Isabel Rivers, Dr David Rundle, and Dr Richard Serjeantson.
Lunch is included in the fee of £15 (£10 for postgraduate students). Please contact Helen Kemp: firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place on the workshop and for further details.
