More previews from the papers for the Ordered Universe conference April 3-6. We’re delighted with the response to the call for papers, and to be in partnership with the International Robert Grosseteste Society (Science, Imagination and Wonder will also include meeting for the society). Amongst the papers accepted we have a theme on interdisciplinarity, marshalled by our own Tom McLeish, a series of papers on Grosseteste’s models and antecedents, and his involvement with the English Franciscans.
- Tom McLeish (York) on ‘Beyond Interdisciplinarity to the Unity of Knowledge: Why we need both Medieval and Modern Minds’
- Nicola Polloni (Durham) on ‘Sources of Light: Remarks on the Grosseteste/Avicebron Connection’
- Michael Robson (St Edmund’s College, Cambridge) on ‘Robert Grosseteste and the Franciscan school at Oxford (1224-53)’
- Angelo Silvestri (Cardiff) on ‘Hugh of Avalon’s Ethical, Political, Artistic and Religious thoughts: a Robert Grosseteste Ante Litteram?’
We are pleased to reveal the conference poster, designed by Alexandra Carr (with an image of the medieval cosmos derived from a light-painting evening in County Durham in late September 2017). Please circulate…
