Fame and Faraday: Michael Faraday in the Twentieth Century

///Fame and Faraday: Michael Faraday in the Twentieth Century

Fame and Faraday: Michael Faraday in the Twentieth Century

As the latest volume of Faraday’s edited correspondence is published, Professor Frank James will look at Faraday’s continuing popularity in an illustrated lecture at Savoy Place, the London home of the IET. Concentrating on the massive celebrations held in 1931 to commemorate the centenary of Faraday’s discovery of electro-magnetic induction, Professor James will examine the impact of these events, referring in particular to Margaret Thatcher’s interest and the issuing of the Faraday twenty pound note in the 1990s. There will be an opportunity to buy volume 5 of The Correspondence of Michael Faraday after the lecture. Frank James is Professor of the History of Science at the Royal Institution.
