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 oliverlodgenetwork@gmail.com giving your name and any dietary requirements.
