= Clocks and Time =

From Agricultural To Industrial Time

In modern life it is hard to imagine not being ruled by a precise clock, regardless of time of day or even time of year. This class will explore changing understanding of Astronomy, The Globe, and a variety of Mechanical principles as they were applied to ever-more-accurate methods of keeping time. In turn we will consider how an ever-more accurate clock has changed our view of ourselves, society and the world as well as having been essential to a number of the important advances in science and technology.
