Brown Bag Lectures

The Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series is a (mostly) weekly talk series that takes place on Tuesdays at lunchtime during the academic year.


Brown Bag Lectures (BBLs) are a series of weekly, informal talks on the history of chemistry or related subjects, including the history and social studies of science, technology, and medicine. Based on original research (sometimes still in progress), these talks are given by local scholars for an audience of our staff and fellows and interested members of the public. Talks center on the current research projects of historians of science, research fellows, artists, and others.

All BBLs begin promptly at noon on the second floor of the Science History Institute. Visitors should check at the front desk for the lecture’s location. Latecomers will not be admitted. Audience members are welcome to eat their lunches during the talks, which are informal in nature. All are invited to attend.

The Brown Bag Lecture Series is a project of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry and the Othmer Library of Chemical History.
