Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Apparently we are close to our target participation, but not quite there, and the registration window has been extended - so please do consider participating in our summer school, and pass this message on to others who might be interested in doing so, asking them to register by next Friday April 20.



HAPP Network Summer School on scientific instruments and environmental physics
This summer school will survey the history of scientific instruments and contribute to our understanding of the development of recent climate science by exploring the critical role of instrumentation and the instrument trade, and the significance of place, scale and audience in the development of the physical sciences. Our studies will help engage histories of physics creatively with issues important in understanding the implications of global warming in distinctively different locales - and should interest those working in meteorology, history and geography, as well as the history and philosophy of science.

For the provisional programme see: Registration to attend the Summer School with payment of the registration fee of £195 which will also include the cost of all lunches and dinners can be done through the website:

Bed and breakfast accommodation in rooms at Brasenose College for the duration of the Summer School can be booked and paid for through the website using the code HAPP2018 before selecting the Summer School dates. (We recommend applying soon to make sure you get one of the on-site rooms at Brasenose.)

There will be visits to the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory as part of the programme. A limited number of bursaries to cover the registration fee are available to students and postdoctoral researchers from developing countries - to apply please send a request or any queries to<> .

Participating faculty include Rob Iliffe (Oxford), Richard Staley (Cambridge), Gregory Good (AIP), Sarah Dry (Independent Scholar), Matthias Heymann (Aarhus), Mike Hulme (Cambridge), Boris Jardine (Cambridge), Joshua Nall (Cambridge), Simon Schaffer (Cambridge)
