Our virtual Lunchtime Lecture Series features discussions on the history of science, technology, and medicine. We invite historians and speakers from the sciences, arts, and humanities to examine intriguing topics followed by a Q&A.
Lunchtime Lectures take a rigorous and entertaining approach to topics of interest to scholars and anyone curious about the history of science. The talks help expand perceptions of the nature of science and how it’s done.
The Lunchtime Lecture Series is a project of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry at the Science History Institute. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
