Workshop 2:  Wireless: Oliver Lodge, Science, & Spiritualism 
Oliver Lodge’s work in telecommunications arose from his life-long interest in the ether.  This workshop explores Lodge’s impact on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century  telecommunications, particularly wireless telegraphy and radio, but situates this alongside his interest in more esoteric etheric phenomena.  Studying Lodge’s spiritualism provides a new way of understanding his physics, but also a way of approaching broader communication networks, occult or otherwise, of the period.

This one-day workshop features papers by Peter Bowler, Elizabeth Bruton, Christine Ferguson, David Hendy, Richard Noakes, and J. Patrick Wilson.

Registration is free but places are limited.  To register, email giving your name and any dietary requirements.
