History of Physical Science and Technology Reading Group

The HPST reading group meets once a month in a pub not far from the Centre for History of Science Technology and Medicine. We discuss three papers over drinks and make an evening of it.

This week we read and discussed:

Carolyn Steedman, ‘What a rag rug means’, Journal of Material Culture, 3:3 (1998), pp. 259-281.

Matthew Grant, ‘Images of Survival, Stories of Destruction: Nuclear War on British Screens from 1945 to the Early 1960s’, Journal of British Cinema and Television, 10:1 (2013), pp. 7–26.

Guy Ortolano, ‘Planning the Urban Future in 1960s Britain,’ The Historical Journal, 54 (2011), pp. 477-507.

The papers fostered a lively discussion as always and related reviews will follow.
