AD HOC London will meet again on Tuesday (21 Feb), in room B15 (22 Gordon Square) at 6pm. The readings for this meeting sound particularly intriguing, in that they bring together a broad range of research interests across our department (and beyond)! Here is a brief introduction to the session from Jenny Ramplings:

'Alchemy, chemistry, publishing and pedagogy unite in the person of E. J. Holmyard (1891-1959): a pioneering teacher who incorporated the history of chemistry into his science textbooks, taught himself Arabic in order to read and translate early works of alchemy, and became the first editor of the journal Endeavour. In our session, we'll be discussing a little-known study of Holmyard's chequered chemical career:

John Kinsman, 'The Contribution of Eric John Holmyard (1891-1959) to Science Education in England and Wales', unpublished MSc dissertation, CNAA (1985).
