Course Description

The course will examine Cambridge’s scientific legacy from the laws of universal gravitation to the ARM microprocessor and take a deep dive into the lives and times of many of the individuals who have shaped science and, by extension, the modern world. Using Cambridge as both a microcosm of scientific research and a lens through which to examine broader issues in the creation of scientific knowledge, 8 this course will examine how people worked within patterns of privilege and oppression to navigate institutional scientific hierarchies over the centuries.
