2015 Thomas Harriot Lecture

Dr Stephen Clucas, Reader in Early Modern Intellectual History, English, and Humanities at Birkbeck, University of London, will deliver this year’s Thomas Harriot Lecture in the Champneys Room, Oriel College, Oxford at 5 pm on Thursday 28 May 2015. The lecture will be followed by an informal drinks reception at 6 pm. After the lecture, there will also be an opportunity of visiting an exhibition in the Senior Library, mounted by the college librarian Mrs Marjory Szurko. The exhibition, entitled “’All the fruites of our labours’: studies of the natural world from Thomas Harriot to Gilbert White”, will celebrate the work of Harriot and the eighteenth-century naturalist Gilbert White, who was both an undergraduate and a fellow of Oriel, and will show contemporary illustrations of the natural world from the library’s collections.

The 2015 lecture marks twenty-five years since the first Thomas Harriot Lecture was given, by Professor David B. Quinn, in 1990.

All welcome


Dr Clucas has provided the following summary of his lecture:

A little over forty years ago John W. Shirley published a collection of essays Thomas Harriot : Renaissance Scientist, which presented Harriot as a “key figure at the time when the new science of logic, reason, mathematics, and experiment was coming into being”. A great deal of work has been done on Harriot since 1974, and this lecture aims to reflect on the advances made in our understanding of him over the last forty years, and to celebrate the twenty-five years of Thomas Harriot lectures at Oriel, which have made such a signal contribution to those advances. By surveying some of the significant moments in Harriot studies in the past decades I hope to come to an understanding of what Harriot means for the twenty-first century, and to reflect on what remains to be done in the decades to come.
