Dear List Members,

This is an invitation on behalf of the students on the course HPSC 3007 
- Topics in the History of the Physical Sciences (STS Department, 
University College London). In this course, undergraduate students are 
asked to form a "scholarly community" and produce original research on 
various aspects of the history of electricity. More information about 
the course and its pedagogical aims can be found here: 
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/sts/study/hpsc/3007 .

The students will be delighted to share their discoveries with the rest 
of the HPS community, in an afternoon of presentations on the theme 
"Electrocultures: Electricity Wild and Domesticated 1800-1970". Please 
join us, and feel free to circulate the details of the event (which you 
will find below) among colleagues and students.

The event is open to everyone, but if you are planning to attend please 
reply to [log in to unmask] . This is just to make sure that there 
will be enough space for our guests and enough refreshments for the 
reception afterwards!

Best wishes,

Chiara Ambrosio, Matthew Paskins and the Students on HPSC 3007
