2) Bonus Lunchtime Event Saturday March 28 12:45-1:45 pm:Medieval Visionaries of Vision: Grosseteste & Giotto

A scientist and a humanities scholar – Prof. Tom McLeish FRS (Physics and Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York, UK and Asst. Prof. Henrike Lange (History of Art and Italian Studies, University of California, Berkeley – take complementary perspectives on two medieval figures of immense influence in the history of ideas, scientific and artistic, leading a lunchtime master class on the value of interdisciplinary readings across fields in the recovery of a united vision for the production of knowledge today. The introduction will include an account of the international Ordered Universe project. The Ordered Universe project brings science, philology, and history to bear on the natural philosophy of Robert Grosseteste, while producing both new historical scholarship and new science from the encounter. A discussion with participants will develop on the theme of good practice in interdisciplinary science-humanities research, mirrored by the value of integrating multiple disciplines in Giotto scholarship, and the role of imagination in the arts and sciences.

Please RSVP by March 26th 2020 to with the subject line “RSVP Visionaries of Vision.” Participants will meet at 12:45 sharp at the Campanile Way entrance to Doe Library.

See you in Berkeley!
