Dr Richard Noakes
I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the joint AHRC- and Leverhulme-funded 'Science in the Nineteenth Century Periodical' at the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield, 1999-2002. The project produced an annotated online index of the scientific, medical and technology content of several major generalist periodicals published in Britain between 1800 and 1900: http://www.sciper.org/
I was Principal Investigator on an 18-month AHRC-funded project on cable telegraphy in Cornwall between 1870 and 1918. This was a joint venture between the University of Exeter and Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and resulted in a major exhbition at the museum and an online database of archive materials: http://www.porthcurno.org.uk/nerve-centre/digital-archive
I have collaborated with Porthcurno Telegraph Museum on 'Connecting Cornwall: Telecommunications, Work and Locality in West Cornwall, 1870-1918': http://www.porthcurno.org.uk/nerve-centre/digital-archive
I was an advisor for The John Tyndall Correspondence Project, an international research and transcription project involving York University, Canada, Montana State University, University of Auckland and several UK unversities: http://www.yorku.ca/tyndall/
I am now on the advisory board and a workshop convenor for the AHRC-funded 'Oliver Lodge Research Network', a collaborative venture with the University of Leeds and other institutions.
