Greg Moynahan: Experience
and Experiment in Early Modern Europe
Wednesday, March 6
In this lecture, Greg Moynahan, an associate professor in the history and science, technology, and society programs at Bard College, will consider the rise of scientific experimentation and its relation to experimentation in the arts. He will consider the early history of both through their common location in collections and museums, suggesting that the appearance of the problem of infinity in natural philosophy was important for the modern relationship between scientific and artistic experimentation.
The talk begins at 6 p.m. in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) Theater.
