Patricia Fara is an author and historian of science at the University of Cambridge. Her areas of particular academic interest include the role of portraiture and art in the history of science, science in the 18th century England during the Enlightenment and the role of women in science.
Taking themes from her work she will explore some of today’s challenging issues, which have a strong resonance for the future of Derby’s economic and educational institutions and for local employment.
