Colloquia

The Program sponsors a regular biweekly Colloquium during the fall and spring terms. Its aim is to enlarge the engagement of faculty and, especially, students with the diverse approaches and cutting-edge work of both junior and senior scholars from the United States and abroad in the history of science and medicine. The colloquia are well attended and are the site of vigorous discussion following the talks.

All colloquia, workshops, and lectures are scheduled for 3:45 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
