Description

The family of Dorothée Pullinger visited Glasgow on the 19th June to open the new exhibition on her work at the Riverside Museum. Due to Dorothée’s connection to Paisley and legacy in engineering, UWS will be unveiling a plaque to mark her considerable achievements in engineering and entrepreneurship in the near future. As Professor Katarzyna Kosmala’s research project focuses on Dorothée Pullinger’s career and the history of engineering, she invited the family to UWS for an informal lunch and opportunity to meet with staff working on the project. The family are eager to see the plaque design, as well as learn more about Professor Katarzyna Kosmala’s research project.
