Science and Culture Research Group

Welcome to the Science and Culture Research Group

Led by Leonie Hannan (HAPP), Diarmid Finnegan (NBE) and Caroline Sumpter (AEL) members of the research group work across multiple subject areas, schools and faculties. Our areas of expertise include science and material culture, the mind in science and culture and science and prediction. We bring together researchers with expertise from the early medieval period to the present day, and include historians and geographers, linguists and literature and science specialists and creative arts practitioners in drama, film and sonic arts. Our members have international research interests, from Europe (including France, Spain, Ireland and Britain) to North and Latin America and the Global South.
