Dr Patricia Fara, a historian of science, is an Emeritus Fellow of Clare College and the President of the Antiquarian Horological Society. Her main focus is on the Enlightenment period, but she has also written and lectured extensively on women in science. Images – including portraits and statues as well as diagrams, photographs and maps – play a key role in all her work; in particular, her most recent book, Life after Gravity: Isaac Newton’s London Career (2021), is structured round a conversation piece by William Hogarth. Her other books include Science: A Four Thousand Year History (2009), which has been translated into nine languages, and A Lab of One’s Own: Science and Suffrage in The First World War (2018).
