First-Year Brittain Fellow Michelle DiMeo was one of five guests invited to give a 1-hour lecture at a Robert Boyle seminar at the Edward Worth Library, Dublin.
This one-day seminar commemorated the 300th anniversary of the foundation of the School of Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin and celebrated that 2011 has been designated the International Year of Chemistry. The international panel of historians of science was chaired by endowed physicians and professors of Chemistry from TCD. The day ended in the launch of the online exhibition “Alchemy and Chemistry at the Worth Library”. http://www.edwardworthlibrary.ie/News-and-Events/Robert-Boyle-Seminar
