Dr Patricia Fara

Keynote lecture at Brighton Doctoral College's Festival of Postgraduate Research 2017

A lab of one's own: science and suffrage in World War One

At the end of World War One, women won the battle for the vote, but they lost the fight for equality. For four years, female scientists and doctors had proved they could succeed in careers traditionally reserved for men. But after the Armistice, conventional hierarchies were rapidly re-established. One hundred years later, they still have not been completely overturned.

Dr Patricia Fara has a degree in physics from Oxford and a PhD in History of Science from London. Now based at Cambridge University, she is the Senior Tutor of Clare College and lectures in the History and Philosophy of Science Department. Her major research topics are eighteenth-century England and scientific portraits but she has published a range of academic and popular books on the history of science.
