In preparation for our final conference in July 2021, we are very pleased to announce that Dr Sam Robinson has joined TIDE to help plan and deliver the digital extravaganza.
Following an ERC-funded PhD at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine of the University of Manchester as part of the Earth Under Surveillance Project, Dr Robinson completed his first book on ocean sciences at the National Institute of Oceanography during the Early Cold War: Ocean Science and the British Cold War State (2018). Since 2018, he has been a member of the Horizon 2020 European Commission-funded InsSciDe project and is currently a member of the Making Climate Histories Project at the University of Cambridge.
Dr Robinson is the Conference Chair of the British Society for the History of Science. In 2020, he was part of the organising team for the British Society for the History of Science Global Digital History of Science Festival which utilised Crowdcast to broadcast public and academic content to 1500+ participants in 56 countries around the world.
We very much look forward to Sam joining us over the next few months as we plan our digital conference ‘On Belonging 2’ and the very exciting events around it.
