Holmes Workshops

The Holmes Workshop Series aims to encourage scholarly discussions of ongoing research among graduate students and faculty members at Yale working on projects related to the history of science and medicine, while fostering a sense of community spirit and collegiality among members of the Program in the History of Science and Medicine. It is named after Dr. Frederic L. Holmes, former chairman of the Program.

Holmes workshops run from 4:30-6:00 p.m. on certain Mondays throughout the fall and spring semesters and will be held in the Fulton Room (333 Cedar Street). Presenters are encouraged to pre-circulate their papers or chapters when possible.
