Lunchtime Lectures

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

Lunchtime Lectures 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 lectures 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 Lunchtime Lecture Series is a project of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry and the Othmer Library of Chemical History.
