Tonight at MUSA – History students and Victorian magic lanterns
March 14, 2014 Leave a comment
A group of St Andrews undergraduate historians will be presenting the results of their work to the public tonight, talking about Victorian magic lanterns and cameras, and providing demonstrations and activities for children. Their presentation will be part of the ‘Science in a Snapshot’ evening at MUSA as part of the Fife Science Festival 2014. The students’ talk has grown out of their work on Dr Aileen Fyfe’s special subject on ‘The Technologies of Victorian Britain’ (MO4930). An account of a similar event held last year, likewise with the participation of students from the School of History, can be read here.
All are welcome. Entry to MUSA for the event between 6 and 9pm is free, with refreshments provided, although booking is required for the pinhole photography workshop.
