After the intellectual delights of Porto, we have been busy, variously, on developing the strands of the Durham Grosseteste project. Work on the De luce edition, translation and multi-disciplinary volume is well advanced, and there are other publication projects in the pipe-line, which we’ll post separately on. The main work of the summer has been on the 3D Visualisation project. We now have a draft, a script, voiceovers recorded and arranged from Sally Hodgkiss and Sir Thomas Allen; Nick and Adam have put a huge amount of effort into the 3D rendering, which has been instrumental in evolving a collaborative basis for the film.
Two upcoming events which we would like to share:
1: Richard Bower will be giving public lecture at Lincoln, on October 8th: ‘Robert Grosseteste, the first Cosmologist?’
This is a free lecture open to students, staff, and members of the public. The lecture: “Robert Grosseteste, the first Cosmologist?” and will take place at 11.00 am in Bishop Grosseteste University Chapel (Lincoln). As our friends in Lincoln have advertised – Prof. Bower is an outstanding astrophysicist who works on the evolution and formation of galaxies. He is also a phenomenal public speaker.
2: The second of our AHRC funded workshops is taking place at the end of October in Durham, 28th-29th with a planning session on the 30th
. The emphasis for this meeting will be the education strand of the project, and we are very pleased to welcome a number of schoolteachers from primary to sixth-form along for the meeting, and look forward very much to working with them. The workshop will include the 3D Visualisation in its current form. Please be in touch with Giles Gasper if you would like any details on this. More to be posted on the blog!
