About The Robin Connor Lectureship
The Robin Connor Lectures are biannual lectures named in honour of Dr. Robin Connor, Dean Emeritus of the Faculty of Science. Dr. Connor was the founding Dean of the Faculty of Science, and served in that capacity from 1970-1979. He had a special interest in the science of measurement and the interaction of scientific with theological thought. The Robin Connor Lectureship in the History and Philosophy of Science is designed to stimulate awareness in and bring together those who have an interest in interpreting science in its broadest terms.
