Texts and contexts: the cultural legacies of Ada Lovelace
An interdisciplinary workshop for postgraduates and early career researchers
Tuesday 8 December 2015
Mathematics Institute, University of Oxford
Registration is now open for the one-day interdisciplinary workshop, Texts and contexts: the cultural legacies of Ada Lovelace. The day will bring together postgraduates, early career researchers, and anyone with an interest in Ada Lovelace, to discuss the cultural influences of Lovelace’s work from the nineteenth century to the present day.
The keynote address will be delivered by Professor Sharon Ruston (Lancaster University), who will later be joined in a roundtable discussion by Professor Richard Holmes and Sydney Padua. The roundtable looks forward to hearing papers on a wide variety of topics, from teaching and curating Lovelace in the 21st century, to Lovelace’s influence in the humanities.
The workshop opens at 9.30am (registration) and will close at 6pm.
Registration closes 29 November.
