Adam Richter, PhD, History and Philosophy of Science and Technology

Thanks for visiting my site! I’m a historian of science and an educator. My research focuses on the relationship between science and religion, particularly in early modern Europe. I am currently researching the role of anti-Catholicism in early modern English science. I am also working on a book (under contract with the University of Toronto Press) based on my PhD thesis. The book will address the connections between science and religion (or natural philosophy and theology) in the complex and fascinating career of John Wallis (1616-1703), the Oxford-based mathematician and Anglican minister. As for teaching, I have developed and taught courses on the history of science and technology at the University of Toronto, Dalhousie University, and the University of King’s College.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to discuss any aspect of my research or teaching!
