Working Groups

Early Modern Science

The Early Modern Science Working Group meets monthly to discuss a colleague’s work in progress or to discuss readings that are of particular interest to participants.  Meetings are usually held at the Consortium offices in Philadelphia from 3:30 to 5:00 on first Fridays.  Scholars located anywhere can also participate online.

  • Peter Dear

    Peter Dear is Professor of the History of Science at Cornell University. His research focus is on the history of European science in the seventeenth century. He teaches more broadly in the history of science, however, and in the fairly new field of science and technology studies.

     

  • Robert Westman

    Robert Westman is Professor of History at U.C. San Diego. His research focus is on the history of fifteenth-century astronomy and the cultural and political context of Copernicus and his work.
