Wireless: Oliver Lodge, Science, and Spiritualism

Making Waves - Oliver Lodge

location: Royal Society, London
date: 24 April 2014
registration: open

Lodge’s scientific reputation had been established through his work detecting signals transmitted through the ether and this interest places Lodge at the heart of a number of key cultural concerns. The ether was a cultural metaphor: a medium that was posited in order to account for connections between people of various kinds. Studying Lodge’s spiritualism provides a new way of understanding his physics, but also a way of approaching broader communication networks, occult or otherwise, of the period.
