Professor Tom McLeish, co-investigator on the AHRC funded research network on The Scientific Works of Robert Grosseteste, will give a lecture as part of the Durham University Institute of Advanced Study‘s Light Year .

In 2013-14 the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University is exploring the theme of Light. In addition to a public lectures series delivered by its IAS Fellows, the Institute of Advanced Study organises a public lecture series connecting the Institute’s thematic interest.

This year’s Institute of Advanced Study series is entitled The Light Year and will offer insights into light from many perspectives; from the role light has played since the formation of the universe and its cosmology to cultural and social changes effected by the development of light.

‘Light Year’ is a year of academic and outreach work devoted to the theme of light, with a huge variety of disciplinary perspectives, visiting fellows and light-oriented events organised by the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University.
